    free moneyThe 100 Black Men of Chicago, the windy city’s preeminent mentoring organization for young, African American men and women, will host its fourteenth annual College Scholarship Fair at the UIC Pavilion on Saturday, October 8, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. 

    More than 5,000 high school seniors, juniors, and sophomores from the Chicago area—including downstate Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Missouri—will meet with recruiters from more than 250 colleges and universities. At the College Scholarship Fair, recruiters are prepared to make instant admissions decisions and offer scholarships.

    Over the previous 13 years of the College Scholarship Fair’s history, millions of dollars in scholarship money has been offered to students, making college possible and more manageable for many. Additionally, community-based organizations and corporate partners conduct educational workshops at the fair to help students better understand and navigate the college admissions process.

    “The College Scholarship Fair provides a counter-narrative to the negative headlines about youth in our community,” said Carl Tutt, president of the board of the 100 Black Men of Chicago, in a statement. “We know that education is key to reducing violence; however, for many of our African American students, financial ability is a barrier to higher education. The 100 Black Men of Chicago’s College Scholarship Fair shows what happens when preparation meets opportunity, and how it can change the course of a young person’s life.”

    The 100 Black Men of Chicago focuses on mentoring, education, health and wellness, and more, at the following sites: South Side, Bronzeville Scholastic Institute; West Side, Build Inc.; South Suburbs, South Suburban College, Oak Forest; West Side, Michele Clark; and Western Suburbs, Quad County Urban League.

    The organization also partners with the University of Illinois Chicago’s African American Advisory Council, which was formed to address the disparities in the hiring of African American administration and staff, and in the number of African Americans in the university’s student body. The 100 Black Men of Chicago is also a member of the Mayor’s Cabinet working on My Brother’s Keeper, an initiative of the Obama White House.

    You can follow the conversation about the Chicago Scholarship Fair on social media using #100BMC and #CSF. 

    Student registration for the College Scholarship Fair is free of charge.
