Student Excellence Scholarships

The Student Excellence Foundation has been serving District 200 for close to 30 years, working with the community to enrich educational opportunities for students. To further that mission, the Foundation established this scholarship program to encourage students to further their education to reach their greatest potential.


The Student Excellence Foundation awards scholarships to graduating District 200 high school seniors who will continue their education at an accredited one-to-four-year college, university, or technical school. The Foundation’s scholarship program recognizes a student’s school and community involvement, academic achievement, and financial need. 

Selection Criteria

Student applications are evaluated on their school and community involvement, academic achievement, and financial need. In addition, applications are evaluated on the clear articulation of future educational goals, personal goals, and high school experiences.


Scholarship applications were open from December 1, 2021 through February 15, 2022. Recipients were notified in April. Applications for 2023 Student Excellence Scholarships will open in December 2022.
