About Us

The Illinois Global Leaders Program is a FREE, TWO-YEAR academic enrichment program that inspires high-achieving Chicago-area high school students to make a difference in their communities through STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) and to pursue higher education.

We do this by offering:
  • four weeks of intensive, project-based STEM programming each summer
  • workshops, field trips, and career exploration opportunities during the school year
  • guidance and support in developing community innovation projects (junior year only)
  • college advising and application assistance (senior year only)

We admit students during their sophomore year for participation during their junior and senior years (enrolled Scholars make a two-year commitment to the program). We serve 100 total juniors and seniors at a time.
