Dominican University Announces Partnership with Hope Chicago

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Education

Dominican University announced a new partnership with Hope Chicago, a nonprofit organization offering debt-free college and workforce opportunities to 4,000 Chicago Public School graduates and their parents residing in some of Chicago’s most disadvantaged and disinvested neighborhoods. Thanks to an expansion of Hope Chicago’s college and university partner network, Hope Scholars can choose Dominican as their college of choice and use their Hope Chicago scholarships there. These scholarships cover tuition, housing, books, fees and an annual stipend—all with a goal of reducing economic and social inequity among CPS students and their families.  As a partner, Dominican will provide Hope Scholars with the wraparound support and career preparedness that are hallmarks of the university. Faculty will help these scholars navigate their new college environment, encourage placement in campus programs and connect them to academic, financial and career advising. Dominican is one of six new institutions of higher learner to join Hope Chicago’s partner network. There are now 29 Illinois schools offering higher education and workforce options for Hope Scholars.
