Please Join Us for the 18th Annual HFS Chicago Scholar's Rock-N-Bowl Night!!

Saturday, February 23rd, 2019.

Join 100+ of your friends and fellow HFS supporters for a fun-filled evening of bowling, beer and prizes. What a great way to forget about the weather this Winter and possibly have a shot at winning the prestigious, five-foot tall Full Plate Memorial bowling trophy for a year!

HFS Chicago Scholars is a family – we are changing our scholars’ lives one student at a time. We strengthen the mind, through our academic enrichment programs; the heart, through our 1:1 mentoring component; and the soul, by improving their circumstance with financial assistance to receive an excellent education.
Because of you, we continue to serve more scholars each year.



Eighth-grade students who satisfy the required criteria are encouraged to apply for an HFS Chicago Scholars High School Scholarship. You must plan to attend (and eventually gain acceptance to) a tuition-charging private high school within the Chicago area.
