About the Scholarship

Established by the family of Martin and Julius Alberico in 2007, the Alberico Scholarship Foundation seeks to improve the path to education for deserving college-bound students through the administration of educational grants to students of talent, merit, and need. The Foundation will award $2,500 scholarships to college-bound high school seniors with financial need who have demonstrated both academic achievement and leadership in their school and community. Eligible high school students in the Chicagoland or Northwest Indiana area are encouraged to apply.
