The Foundation for Excellence is pleased to announce that 2021 Horizon Grant applications are now available.
The Horizon Grant helps high school juniors explore areas of talent or interest during the summer between the junior and senior year.
The Foundation for Excellence encourages District 202 high school students to pursue excellence by participating in summer studies of topics that mesh with student talents and interests.
The Horizon Grant may be used to help fund summer experiences in areas such as art, music, theater, dance, science, mathematics, literature, technology, civic engagement or student leadership.
Students are encouraged to explore areas of interest and broaden their horizons through workshops, classes, field studies, internships or conferences.
Multiple grants* will be awarded to help fund out-of-district summer learning experiences designed to enrich, enhance and expand student awareness of and participation in a focused area of study.
Last summer, eight high school juniors took part in enriching learning experiences with the help of a Horizon Grant. These students traveled to North Carolina, Georgia, New York and throughout Illinois for summer study opportunities in their fields of interest.

Let the Horizon Grant help you expand your vision of what???s possible.
