Cubs Scholars

Cubs Scholars
Cubs Scholars are selected among students in Chicago area schools to receive four-year college scholarships. Eligible students must be high school students from Chicago inner-city high schools.

Five students will receive scholarships for four years of college. Eligible students must plan to attend a four-year college or university. In addition to the scholarship, Cubs Scholars will participate in Cubs College Prep in their senior year of high school and into college. They will be mentored by a Cubs Front Office Associate who will guide them through their senior year of high school and help them make the transition into college.

Once Cubs Scholars are in college, they will participate in a one-year college preparation program that will greatly increase their chances of graduating from college. The program includes seminars, workshops and mentoring designed to prepare each student for success in college.

The scholarship is offered by the Chicago Cubs Charities, established in 1986. The non-profit is funded by donations from Cubs fans, corporate partners and players, and fundraising events.

The deadline for this scholarship VARIES each year, and the award amount is usually $20,000.
