The Student Excellence Foundation has been serving District 200 for 30 years, working with the community to enrich educational opportunities for students. To further that mission, the Foundation has established a 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 and achievements, academic achievements, family circumstances and financial need.

Selection Criteria

Student applications will be evaluated on their school and community involvement and achievements, academic achievement, and financial need. In addition, applications will be evaluated on the clear articulation of future educational goals, personal goals, and personal experiences, which may include, but not be limited to, experiences specific to high school.


Scholarship applications are open from December 1, 2022 through February 15, 2023. Recipients will be notified in April. Click to the button complete your application on our Kaleidoscope platform.
