WADI CSBG Scholarship Available


It's time to start taking CSBG Scholarship applications for the Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 school year.  Seven scholarships will be awarded, with one per county in the amount of $1150.  Students must enroll full-time at an Illinois college or university for the 2016-2017 school year and be under 125% of the federal poverty income guidelines.

Once an application is returned to the county manager, if it looks like they meet the guidelines, the county manager will call them in to verify the household income for the previous 30 days and obtain proof of the student's SSN.

Once awarded, one-half of the scholarship award is sent to the college for the fall term and the remainder is sent for the spring term.  Any funds remaining once tuition and books have been paid for will be released by the college to the student for travel to help with living expenses.

The scholarship deadline is April 14, 2016.  If you know of anyone who might qualify for the scholarship, you may obtain a CSBG Scholarship application from your local county manager of from our website  Staff and their family members may apply if they meet the eligibility guidelines.
