© 2018 Green Halo Scholars - Green Halo is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.​ Contributions are tax-deductible as provided by U.S. law.

Green Halo works with each of our scholars on the college application process.

We assist them in making informed college choices based on the best academic, social, and financial fit.

We teach our scholars how to build their college lists and evaluate the graduation rate,

academic quality, and overall sustainability at each of the colleges they are considering.

 

We have two levels of support to achieve this goal:

Our Emerald Scholars are nominated by their high school counselors while in their second semester of junior year. They receive support from our mentors to prepare for and attend Onsite and have the unique opportunity to interview with college representatives, receive onsite admission offers and financial aid packages. In addition to our mentors’ support our Emerald Scholars receive guidance from a professional college counselor hired by Green Halo Scholars. This additional guidance includes, but is not limited to, bi-weekly online meetings beginning with a focus on Onsite participation and continuing beyond Onsite with completing additional college applications, FAFSA support, scholarship selection and ultimately helping our high schoolers make the right college choice to attend in the fall. At this time our Emerald Scholar program is limited to Proviso East, Proviso Math & Science and Proviso West High Schools.
Our Jade Scholars are nominated by their high school counselors to participate in the Green Halo program while in their second semester of junior year. Participation in the program includes support from our mentors to attend the Chicago Scholars Onsite Admission Forum held yearly in October in Chicago, IL. Onsite gives our students the unique opportunity to interview with college representatives, to potentially receive onsite admission offers as well as financial aid at the event. Our mentor led workshops assist the Jade scholars in researching college options, completing applications while adhering to deadlines for the Onsite Forum. Post Onsite we continue to support our high schoolers with scholarship applications to narrow the financial gap and with deciding the best college for their post secondary careers.
