On the occasion of the President’s Club’s 10th anniversary, Columbia College Chicago initially announced the President’s Club Endowment Scholarship. Marcia Lazar, a trustee for the institution, worked tirelessly to increase the Club’s membership by extending invitations to board members, alumni, faculty, staff, parents, and friends of the school. These organizations are all aware of the importance of a Columbia College education today.

This award will help cover the expense of students’ tuition. This award is open to undergraduate students who will finish at least 90 credits before the end of the spring 2023 semester.
