Humboldt Park Vocational Education Center (HPVEC) Scholarship

The Humboldt Park Vocational Education Center (HPVEC) Scholarship Fund was established to provide scholarships for deserving students in need of financial assistance to complete their studies at HPVEC. Scholarship awards are generally allocated as partial tuition rather than full scholarships. Scholarships will be awarded primarily to existing students to be applied towards current or future tuition or, in rare cases, as matching funds (maximum $250 one-time match) to pay a prior balance at HPVEC which must result in a $0 balance for the semester in which they are enrolling.

Up to $1,500

Eligibility Criteria include:
• Only students enrolled/enrolling at Humboldt Park Vocational Education Center are eligible;
• Must be in good standing (2.0 GPA or higher);
• Must be a resident of the City of Chicago and eligible for in-district tuition rates;
• Pursuing any vocational certificate program and/or enrolling in credit or continuing education classes;
• Decisions will be based on the financial need of the student as ascertained by their FAFSA;

• Must be a resident of the City of Chicago and eligible for in-district tuition rates.
