DUPAGE COUNTY COMMUNITY SERVICES - Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Scholarship

The Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Scholarship is designed, in cooperation with the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, to provide financial assistance to low-income and disadvantaged persons of high academic attainment or potential, with preference given to applicants of racial or ethnic minorities.

Scholarships will go toward providing formal education or occupational training in an accredited Illinois educational institution to CSBG-eligible clients, with particular consideration given to study in high technology areas or other growth occupations. Education and training made possible through the scholarships include either general education to achieve short-term training (2 years or less) in growth occupation skills, or general post-secondary education.

This is a competitive scholarship. Not all applicants who are eligible will be chosen as a recipient. The Scholarship Committee of the CSBG Administrative Board will determine the recipients and forward their recommendations to the full board.
