HIAS Scholarships

Since 1991, through the generosity of HIAS Immigration & Citizenship's friends and supporters, HIAS has been fortunate to be able to provide academic scholarships to an extremely impressive group of individuals who immigrated or whose family immigrated to the Chicago area with the assistance of HIAS Chicago, or who accessed HIAS' immigration and citizenship services once in the United States.

These undergraduate and graduate scholarships include: the Benton-Bernstein Scholarship for those entering the helping professions; the Tilly Warshaw Scholarship for high school graduates; the Max and Anna Warshofsky Scholarship; the Michael Polsky Family Scholarship Funds for high school graduates and career enhancement; the Ruth Schultz Memorial Scholarship Fund; the Bernard Gordon Memorial Scholarship Fund; and funds contributed in loving memory of Beatrice Nessenson.

In 2019, scholarships will be awarded in the following categories: 


Awarded to high school seniors beginning post-secondary education or college students continuing in undergraduate study.  Study must be full-time at a 4 year college or university. 


Awarded to students enrolling in or continuing enrollment in a graduate level educational program.  

Purdue Scholars Award

Awarded to an undergrdate or graduate student enrolling or continuing enrollment in Purdue University.
