Scholarship Program

The Woodridge Area Chamber of Commerce has a proud annual tradition of awarding scholarships to graduating high school seniors who are interested in furthering their post-high school education. Each year the chamber offers one or more scholarships for those who are planning to attend a business college, two-year college, four-year university, or to a graduating high school senior who is planning to attend a vocational, technical, or trade school.

Eligibility
To be eligible for these scholarships, applicants must reside in the Village of Woodridge through their date of graduation from high school or have a parent or guardian who is a member of the Woodridge Area Chamber of Commerce. The application period runs from January through the end of February with scholarship winners recognized at a scholarship breakfast in May.

Testimonial
“Receiving this scholarship meant so much to me. It is nice to know that hard work in and out of the high school classroom really pays off, and that it does not go unrecognized. I have been able to put the money from this scholarship toward my college education which is something I highly value. It gives me motivation to get every advantage possible out of this next chapter of my life.”  
Kathryn Wylly, 2012 Woodridge Chamber of Commerce Scholarship Recipient
