"Children's Children" Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

At Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, we are committed to helping you meet your personal and professional goals. It is part of our promise to you as an employee. One such goal you may have is to provide a college education for your children.

Lurie Children’s is sponsoring the “Children’s Children” Scholarship Program to assist the children of our employees in continuing their education in college or vocational school programs toward a career in the healthcare field.

We believe this program will be a valuable tool in contributing to the future pool of healthcare professionals for Lurie Children’s and the healthcare community in general.

The “Children’s Children” Scholarship Program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability or national origin.

    *Dependent children are defined as natural and legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.

  • High school seniors who plan to enroll or students who are already enrolled in full-time undergraduate study in the field of healthcare, at an accredited two- or four-year college, university or vocational/technical college for the entire upcoming academic year.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Lurie Children’s. Payment is made in one installment in early August. Checks are mailed to each recipient’s home address and are made payable to the school for the student.

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of:
