On February 22nd, the students at Benito Juárez Community Academy received the surpise of a lifetime. The organization, Hope Chicago, gifted full college scholarships to all students currently in grades 9-12 at Benito Juárez as well as a debt-free post-secondary experience to a parent or guardian of their choosing. 

Hope Chicago is scheduled to announce a total of five surprise scholarship announcements. The 2nd, coming right after Benito Juárez, was made at AL RABY School for Community & Environment, located at 3545 W. Fulton Chicago, IL 60624 in Garfield Park. The organization said the total number of students who will receive Scholarships will be close to 4,000 and does not include the adult/guardian recipients.

Here’s what Benito Juarez Community Academy posted to their Facebook page following the announcement:

“IF YOU ARE A CURRENT JUAREZ 9th-12th GRADE STUDENT YOU ARE GOING TO COLLEGE FOR FREEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!! But that’s not all. Each current student can send one parent back to school for free too!!
Thanks to the generosity of @hopechicagoedu ALL current BJCA students, 9th – 12th graders, have been selected to benefit from an once-in-a-lifetime scholarship opportunity. Hope Chicago will award ALL current Benito Juarez Community Eagles AND a parent/guardian a debt-free post-secondary experience. The scholarship will cover the entire cost of their post-secondary education at partner schools and organizations (tuition, room and board, books and fees).
In addition, students will receive a $750 unrestricted stipend at the beginning of each school year.”
Hope Chicago will be announcing the next 3 schools whose students will be the recipients of this life changing opportunity. Congratulations to all the recipients thus far.
