Starfish Scholarship Fund2019-2020
Starfish is committed to seeing our students succeed academically, and in life. In the past, one of the many ways that we have worked to make that happen is through the Starfish Scholarship Fund. We are renewing this program for the 2019-2020 school year, hoping to give our kids yet another tool for academic success.

Meet our kids
Our kids come from Latino and African American homes in a low-income neighborhood, Rogers Park, in the inner city of Chicago. They face many challenges to education including area gangs and violence and many come from single-parent homes. We teach our kids a better way of life and shield them from the dangers of the street. After they grow up through our program, the Starfish Scholarship Fund gives them the opportunity to escape the statistics and make their own way.
