Northwestern is honored to partner with the 100 Club of Chicago Educational Assistance Program to support children of fallen emergency responders in Cook County with the offering of two scholarships a year. Helping families in educational financial need is a mission that the University can help to fulfill. We are especially proud that the scholarships at Northwestern are named after Life Trustee Jim O’Connor, who is also the 2013 President of the 100 Club of Chicago. We applaud Jim’s role in forming the 100 Club’s Educational Assistance Program many years ago. Northwestern is thrilled to participate.
