Deadline to Apply for CFNIL Scholarships Extended

In light of the ongoing disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly for our schools and families with school-aged children, CFNIL has extended the deadline for the 2022 CFNIL Scholarship application one week. The new deadline is 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 8th, 2022.

CFNIL administers nearly one hundred unique scholarships, all established for the benefit of students in northern Illinois. There are scholarships for students of all ages, backgrounds, and educational aspirations. This year alone CFNIL will award over $350,000 to students in our region. 

All scholarship applications must be submitted through CFNIL’s online application portal. Once registered for the portal, students answer questions about their academics, background, and extracurricular activities. From these answers, applicants will be automatically matched to all scholarships for which they are eligible.
