Young people from Lake, LaPorte and Porter counties are encouraged to apply. The deadline for scholarship submissions is March 27, 2022 at 11:59 p.m.

Many of those who have already won scholarships tell compelling stories all due to the help of an Urban League scholarship. Many times the financial challenges students in the Region face are insurmountable. The Urban League gives students a convenient platform whereby they can apply to several scholarships.

Scholarships are also available for “Returning Adults!” If you have stopped attending school and plan to begin again, you could be eligible to receive a $1,000 scholarship.

In May of 2022, the Urban League will hold its Annual Student Achievement Luncheon, a veritable rainbow of the region. The League will honor students who have pushed away barriers to advance their academic achievement; as a result, these students will receive scholarship monies.

As you make your charitable donations, please consider the Urban League as the premier agency committed to the Region’s post-secondary success. Donations can be made online at
