2022 Community Scholarship Fair Returns In-Person

Rockford Public Library (RPL), the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois (CFNIL), and Rock Valley College Foundation (RVCF) are excited to announce that the 11th annual Community Scholarship Fair will return IN PERSON after a two-year hiatus.

On Tuesday, December 6, 2022, from 5:30 – 8:30pm at Embassy Suites in downtown Rockford (416 S Main Street) students, parents, and interested community members can meet face-to-face with dozens of local scholarship providers who collectively award more than $800,000 in scholarships annually to students right here in northern Illinois. 

In addition to visiting the provider’s booths, attendees may join two informational seminars, each presented twice during the event. One seminar will cover the scope of the financial aid process and resources for scholarship seekers and their supporters, as well as the RVCF scholarship process. The second seminar will provide an overview of the 100+ scholarships available via one application from CFNIL as well as resources available through RPL.

Scholarship seekers of all ages, backgrounds, and educational aspirations should attend! The diversity and generosity of our community is reflected in the variety of available scholarships and their wide range of qualifying criteria, including but not limited to: financial need, academic excellence, community involvement, and future career paths. Scholarships are available for students of all ages and citizenship status.
