External Scholarship Opportunities

Alumni Mothers’ Club Scholarship

The BRHS Alumni Mothers’ Club established the “Moms Helping Moms” Scholarship Fund to assist mothers, who are primary bread winners in their families. The partial scholarship is need-based, and awarded to students who understand the sacrifice their moms make to send them to Brother Rice.

The Brother Rice Counseling Department will provide eligible students with the “Mom’s Helping Mom’s” application and the BRHS Alumni Mother’s Club members will annually review applications and choose awardees.

Additional Financial Assistance

In January, the application process for Illinois Tax Credit Scholarships for the 2023-2024 school year will begin. Families that meet the income requirements of the program are encouraged to apply at Empower Illinois and Big Shoulders. Current tax credit scholarship recipients and those who were placed on a waitlist for the current school year must reapply in January if they hope to receive a scholarship for the following year. There are no assurances that current scholarship recipients will receive another scholarship for the following school year. The sooner the time stamp reservation is obtained (at Empower Illinois) and the completed application is submitted (at Big Shoulders), the better the chances are that your student will receive a scholarship.
