Annual CABC Foundation Scholarship Fund

Since 2019, the Chicago Aldermanic Black Caucus has been most proud of our scholarship fund program. We as a caucus are so excited to lift the power of young students and support them as they embark onto higher education.

The Chicago Aldermanic Black Caucus Foundation was formed in 2019 to ensure the coordination and collaboration amongst the black aldermen as they represent the issues most impactful to their black constituency. The 2021 Chicago Aldermanic Black Caucus Scholarships are non-renewable awards available to students pursuing a two year or four-year degree from an accredited university. The scholarships are $2,500 and are given to students to help alleviate the cost of tuition, fees, room and board, and books.
