  • It's too late to apply for the

    2024 Superintendent's Scholarship,

    but we welcome donations at any time of year!

Elgin High School Superintendent Scholarship winners from Class of 2024
  • Ambitious. Driven. Creative. Compassionate.  These are some of the words we see over and over again when we read the recommendation letters for our Superintendent's Scholarship applicants.  

    The Superintendent's Scholarship at School District U-46 supports first-generation college students as they pursue higher education. Since 2012, hundreds of U-46 graduates have received this prestigious award, including Nancy Cortez, Class of 2023, who told us that with the help of adults in her life, determination, and this scholarship, she felt able to achieve the goals she had set for herself. Today, Nancy is working on her time management skills while attending Illinois State University, with a double major in Psychology and Spanish.  

    Every year, generous donors like you partner with the U-46 Educational Foundation to help foster our students' dreams. Your support of the Superintendent's Scholarship will not only help a deserving first-generation student financially, it will let them know that their community is standing beside them as they take their first steps toward higher education.
