On July 12th, college counselors, Sharon Holdvogt & Beth Kainic, accompanied ten rising CRSM seniors to the 5th Annual Scholars College Fair at University of Illinois. The event brings in over 150 colleges and universities from around the country to meet the new class of 2020 who are in the process of building their potential college list.
CRSM students attended the fair which is a prelude to the huge Onsite Admissions Forum that will take place at Navy Pier this coming October. Well over 900 students from across Chicagoland will receive offers of acceptance and merit-based scholarships on the day of the event. Last year, over $66 million in merit-based aid was awarded; twenty-four CRSM seniors participated in that event – all receiving multiple acceptances and scholarships from their Onsite schools.
The event is a collaborative event co-hosted with Illinois Tech Global Leaders, UChicago Collegiate Scholars, and UIC and offers the opportunity to meet, ask questions, and learn about many of Chicago Scholars’ college partners.
