"The collective financial support that Richard J. Daley College students will receive from all of us in our own community through this End of the Year Scholarship strengthens their sense of belonging and support their road to success in continuing and completing their higher education."

Alumni Making an Impact

Yesenia Licona, born in Mexico and a naturalized citizen, used her experience, passion, and artistic prowess to help get the word out to her community about filling out the U.S. Census and to vote in the November presidential elections. Active in her Midway-area neighborhood, the Daley College alumna graduated with her Associate in Arts degree, and will start pre-law and psychology classes at DePaul University.  After years of seeing lawyers help her parents and others in their community on the road to citizenship and beyond, Yesenia was inspired to make a difference, too. Once she earns her bachelor's degree, she plans to pursue her law degree as well.

"We at Richard J. Daley College are focused on each one of our students---as Individuals with their own story working to achieve their personal and professional goals and dreams. Each of our student’s story is different, however most have financial challenges in paying for college. Through financial scholarships, we can work together to address their financial challenges and enable our students to achieve greater success." Janine E. Janosky, Ph.D. President Richard J. Daley College
