University of Chicago’s Emerging Rural Leaders Program

The University of Chicago welcomes all and is deeply committed to ensuring that students from every background can find a home here. Thanks to a generous donation from the Trott Family Foundation, UChicago created the Emerging Rural Leaders Program in 2018 to reduce the barriers to college that rural students and families face by offering college admissions programming on-campus and in local communities, providing mentoring and support systems for high school students, and updating financial aid policies and scholarships to enable more rural students to pursue higher education at UChicago.
