Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Education

Car Outlet announced its annual scholarship program for students pursuing higher education. The Chicago-based company, a pillar of car services in the Latino community for over 15 years, is offering ten $1,500 community-based scholarships and five $5,000 internal family scholarships available to students who meet eligibility criteria and are selected by an external review committee for the third year in a row. The scholarships are to be applied directly to tuition and other academic expenses in the 2015/2016 academic year. “When we launched the program in 2013 we knew there was a very real need for more funding opportunities for students seeking higher education in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs and cities,” Charles Serlin, chief operating officer at Car Outlet said. This year’s scholarship outreach campaign will include a grassroots outreach campaign urging students and parents to visit the program’s website for information on eligibility and how to apply.
