This page lists some frequently asked questions about LINK Unlimited Scholars. If your question is related to the LINK application or admissions process, please check the FAQ section on the “Become A Scholar” page. 



1. What is LINK Unlimited Scholars?

For more than 50 years, LINK Unlimited Scholars has been a Chicago-based institution working to change the trajectory of high-potential African American youth by providing unique programming in the classroom and beyond. Through academic support, leadership development, mentors, and financial subsidies and scholarships, LINK offers the necessary backing to help close the opportunity gap and further ensure economic stability for our scholars.

2. Does the family have to pay anything?

LINK tuition scholarships are meant to supplement the financial aid awarded by partnering private schools to reduce the amount of expected family contribution. Families are responsible for the cost of tuition and school-related fees outside of the financial support that LINK and/or outside scholarships may provide. If awarded a LINK scholarship, families must verify eligibility each year of the Scholar’s participation in LINK. The number of scholarships available to each incoming class may vary.
