How to Get Involved

There are many ways to get involved in helping Chicago Public Schools students find success through the University of Chicago Collegiate Scholars Program.

Parents are always welcome to attend events with their Scholars, chaperone field trips, or help out at events. Alumni are welcome to participate as mentors and guides. Corporations and foundations are encouraged to take a vested interest in the future of these promising young people through sponsorship of UCCSP programming.

We also offer a number of volunteer opportunities for families, alumni, members of the University community, or anyone interested in the mission of Collegiate Scholars.

Volunteer opportunities include:

  • Student mentoring and tutoring
  • Participating in career events to talk to students about various professions
  • Hosting Collegiate Scholars alumni for a daylong externship
  • General office support, including answering phones, assisting with mailings, scheduling appointments

We also welcome you to make an online donation to the University of Chicago Collegiate Scholars Program.
