De La Salle Institute recently received a grant of $183,000 from the Bernard Heerey Family Foundation to provide financial assistance through the Multi-Student Scholarship Program and Presidential Scholarship Program for the 2020-2021 academic year.
The Bernard Heerey Family Foundation has provided scholarship support of more than $2.75 million to De La Salle Institute since 2007.
The Multi-Student Scholarship Program Grant provides scholarships to families with multiple children attending De La Salle. The Presidential Scholarship Program Grant 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 2020-2021 academic year, 35 deserving students were awarded scholarships through the Multi-Student Scholarship Program and five De La Salle students received scholarship awards through the Presidential Scholarship Program. These Heerey 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 its 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.
