We Help Niles Area Students Succeed Through Scholarships for Higher Education

Niles Chamber of Commerce Dollars for Scholars® is a nonprofit foundation comprised of business members of the Niles Chamber of Commerce & Industry that supports academic success in the Niles, Illinois area community.  We donate our time throughout the year trying to raise money for local students who need financial aid as they enter high school and college. In the past fifteen years this program has awarded over $145,000 in scholarships to area students.  For 2018, we will award two $4,000 College Scholarships ($1,000 each year for up to four years). Application deadline is Monday, February 5, 2018. Winners will be notified by March 1, 2018.
