SCHAUMBURG HIGH SCHOOL V.I.P. Club Special Education Scholarship
The V.I.P. Special Education Scholarship is intended to reward outstanding students who have demonstrated their success at Schaumburg High School and in the community.

Students who will graduate from Schaumburg High School in 2019 and who have attended Schaumburg High School since their junior year may apply for this scholarship.

Applicants must be planning to further their education and must indicate on the application whether they will be attending a 4-year College or university, 2-year community college, or technical/vocational school.

The Board has budgeted a total of $1,000.00 for one $1,000.00 Special Education Scholarship Award this year.

The winners will be determined by the V.I.P. Club Scholarship Committee.

Applicants will be evaluated on the information provided through the application and letters of recommendation. The committee will use a point system. Points will be awarded to each section of the application. Applicants’ names will not be known by the judging committee.

You may apply for more than one type of V.I.P. Club Scholarship; however, you will be only awarded one (1) scholarship. The scholarship awarded will be the scholarship with the highest dollar amount for which the applicant qualified using the score from the points system.

Those applicants selected as award winners will be notified in April and will be presented with their awards at the General Membership Meeting of the V.I.P. Club in May.
