  • Dependent* children, age 26 and under, of part-time or full-time DuPage Medical Group employees who have a minimum of one (1) year of employment with the company as of the application deadline.*Dependent children are defined as biological, step- or legally adopted children living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
  • High school seniors or graduates who plan to enroll or students who are already enrolled in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school for the entire upcoming academic year.

Children of c-suite, board members, directors, and doctors are ineligible to apply.

Award Information:

  • Up to five (5) awards of $5,000 will be granted.
  • Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first.
