Hilco Again Providing Scholarships to Little Village Residents

For the third year in a row, Hilco Global will provide two scholarship opportunities for students living in the West Side’s Little Village community. 

The Hilco Scholarship Program, called “Hilco Scholars,” is now accepting applications for qualified candidates who are attending or planning to attend one of the City Colleges of Chicago. The scholarship will be awarded prior to start of the fall 2021 semester.  
“Offering this program for a third year demonstrates Hilco Redevelopment Partners’ continued support to our neighbors in the Little Village community,” said Roberto Perez, CEO of Hilco Redevelopment Partners. “Every year the students we support continue to amaze me and we are honored to be part of their educational journeys.”

The 2021 scholarship will be awarded to two students who are pursuing a degree in a skilled trade program at one of the seven City Colleges of Chicago.
