Graduating, high school seniors or military veterans who reside in Chicago or its southern suburbs, and who are accepted into an accredited four-year college or university as entering freshmen are eligible. Students must have a 3.0 or better GPA and a positive behavioral record. The MJBF Scholarship is open to all eligible students regardless of race, ethnicity or sexual orientation.
The scholarship is a free, one time $2,500 award provided to the selected student(s). The student(s) may use the scholarship to assist in undergraduate related expenses such as payment of tuition, fees, books, room and board and/or travel to and from school and home. At least one award is promised. The number of scholarships awarded depends on the funds raised during the year. The scholarship is presented to the student(s) at a Scholarship event in their honor. This year, MJBF will host a hybrid event with the 2nd annual A Toast to Marcus (an interactive virtual event) taking place on July 9, 2021 and the 4th annual MJB Golf Classic taking place on July 10, 2021. The recipient(s) MUST be present at the events in order to receive the award.
