MILTON TOWNSHIP YOUTH SCHOLARSHIPS

Youth Committee Scholarships

Committee Members:

The Milton Township Youth Committee was established in May 2001. Under Illinois law, guidelines are established under which a Township Youth Committee may operate.  We have chosen a plan that includes the following principled guidelines:

We will look for and support activities not already addressed by other programs available through school, government, or private organizations. Past events will not be accepted for consideration, and only services not yet rendered will be considered.

We will seek to provide goods and services to our youth that fill a unique or special need in that child's life.
Nearly 100% of our scholarship and evaluation monies will directly benefit each child served because volunteer services virtually eliminate the overhead and Township expenses that most programs require.
A professional database, confidentiality and total accountability are hallmarks of our Youth Committee.
These benefits are provided exclusively to Milton Township residents as established by a student’s school enrollment within our Township or a preschool child's residence in the Township.
These guidelines are applied to children in the form of scholarship grants which cannot exceed $300.00 per child per year.

Over 1,000 applications have been processed since the Committee’s inception. 

We can make the difference this year between children being left behind in areas of their life because the immediate needs exceed the resources of a family. Let us help you and your child by calling us today.
Personal and prompt attention will be given to you and your child.
