Foundations & Grants

People devoted to a cause or field of study often donate to or set up a foundation that furthers their interests. In turn, foundations frequently give back to students who study or are affected by those interests. For example, The Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago is dedicated to educating and helping epileptics and their families. To assist promising students with seizure disorders in their scholarly efforts, they regularly offer money to those who need financial aid.

The Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago is just one of the many foundations that help students afford an education. Foundations for nearly every cause and field of interest are available, and grants are a common theme.
