About Our Scholarships

Common Roots Initiative has given $6,000 in scholarships to Proviso East High School (PEHS) teachers. Previous recipients include U.S. National Teachers Hall of Fame inductee Glenn Lid, as well as Edward Beidas, Ashley Glickman, Alexander Aschoff, Manuel Almazan and Daphne Hill. Also, CRI has awarded about $4,000 to PEHS students.

Over the last few years, CRI embarked upon a new mission aimed at delivering opportunities to inspire under-resourced high school youth and their teachers to courageously create fulfilling careers. The teacher scholarship was updated to not only support classroom initiatives, but also professional development aims. The student scholarship money was used to offer engaging experiences to PEHS students, such as the CRI Design Lab. For 2019 and onward, CRI will provide more financial assistance to PEHS educators and students.
