De La Salle Institute received a grant of $175,000 from the Bernard Heerey Family Foundation to provide financial assistance through the Multi-Student Scholarship Program for the 2021-2022 school year. The Foundation has provided scholarship support of more than $3.1 million to De La Salle since 2007.
The Multi-Student Scholarship Program Grant provides scholarships to families with multiple children attending De La Salle. Established in 2020, the Presidential Scholarship Program provides up to 80% of the full tuition cost for De La Salle students who maintained a B+ grade point average or better in the prior academic year, scored in the 97th percentile on the high school entrance exam and received a letter of recommendation from a teacher from the prior school year.
For the 2021-2022 academic year, 35 deserving students were awarded scholarships through the Multi-Student Scholarship Program. These student-scholars have expressed their heartfelt appreciation for the financial support of the Bernard Heerey Family Foundation and indicated that these awards truly make a difference for their families.
We are grateful to the Bernard Heerey Family Foundation for their generosity and endorsement of De La Salle’s position as an educational leader in Chicago. The Foundation’s investment in our students and families enables De La Salle to further its mission of providing an innovative, Lasallian education to the young women and men attending De La Salle.
