Program Description:
Launched in 2001 by Jack Schuler and daughter, Tanya Schuler Sharman, the Schuler Scholar Program (SSP) was originally conceived as a vehicle for the Schuler Family Foundation to provide college scholarship assistance to bright, motivated high school students in order for them to matriculate to selective, private colleges and universities. Students at partner high schools in the Chicagoland area would be chosen in the spring of their freshman year to receive mentoring and college counseling while in high school and a scholarship award for college.
Established:
2001
Number of Students Served:
696
Mission Statement:
We believe that if high achieving but potentially vulnerable students have access to academic and enrichment programs while in high school, are well-informed of college options, receive support from family, friends, teachers and mentors, are motivated, and secure financial assistance, they will be successful in obtaining a college degree.
Objectives:
The Schuler Scholar Program (SSP) prepares under-resourced, high potential students to succeed at the most competitive private colleges and universities. Schuler Scholars are typically first-generation college-bound, come from under-resourced families or communities and will need financial assistance in order to attend college. Many Scholars are from a population that is under represented on college campuses.
