WSC Scholars Program

At this time, we are unfortunately no longer able to offer the World Sport Chicago Scholarship to new applicants. We remain committed to our support of financial aid of the 46 current WSC Scholars in high school and college.

Since 2010, the WSC Scholars Program engaged over 200 Chicago high school juniors and over 85 volunteer mentors. Throughout the course of the program, WSC Scholars:

  • Attended over 20 workshops focused on the college application process
  • Applied to and attended “good match and fit” colleges
  • Spoke with nearly 2,000 elementary school students about the importance of athletics and academics, inspiring a new generation of student-athletes
  • Recorded over 178 volunteer activities
  • Had the opportunity to attend special events such as Olympic Day activities, the United States Olympic Committee’s Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony presented by Allstate and the Doha GOALS forum

Current WSC Scholars attend 35 different universities and receive financial aid ranging from $1,453 to $10,000 annually, and we are dedicated to honoring our promise to support their college education.

If you are a Chicago high school junior looking for pre-college mentoring, we encourage you to apply to the Chicago Scholars program at www.chicagoscholars.org.
