Our stories

Scholars, staff and alumni
The stories of the journey
Schuler has helped more than 1,800 first-generation students, students of color, and low-income students in Chicago on their path to college and career. This is how they learn and grow with the program and how they use the Scholar skills of resilience, self-confidence, and intellectual curiosity to succeed.
Meet the scholars, celebrate the milestones

Alumni Scholars are the leaders of the future. They become doctors, Fulbright Scholars, aeronautical engineers, teachers, social workers, environmental activists, librarians, and more. Some Scholars pursue post-graduate degrees while others have gone on to work for places like Microsoft and Google, the U.S. Attorney’s office, local government, Chicagoland schools, and universities around the country. Whatever their aspirations, our Scholars have the drive, the discipline, and the skills to achieve everything they set out to do.
