LINK Unlimited Scholars Partners


We selectively partner with high quality, college preparatory private, parochial and CPS high schools that have a proven track record of adequately preparing students for college success. Specifically, we ensure that all LINK partnering high schools offer academic rigor, academic and social supports, critical thinking and writing skills, and leadership experiences that give our scholars the tools needed to thrive in their top-choice higher education institution. Our partnerships ensure our history of 100% admittance to four-year institutions continues.


Thank you to all of our corporate and foundation partners for being instrumental in our daily work to ensure that our scholars are realizing their full potential.

Partnering with LINK Unlimited Scholars is beneficial for everyone.

  • Scholars receive internship opportunities that offer first-hand experience to better prepare them for business school and other post graduate programs.
  • Our program serves as a pipeline for academically accomplished African American scholars to become future leaders and employers, while creating diversity in the workplace.
