Scholarships for teachers created by Pelino family
Thanks to the generosity of Margie Pelino, greater numbers of Chicago’s youngest students will share a classroom with teachers possessing a deep knowledge of child development and education.
Pelino recently made a $1 million gift to create scholarships for Erikson students who are teachers in prekindergarten through third grade classrooms, as well as those who are pursuing their early childhood teaching license.
The scholarships will support students of color, those specializing in bilingual/ESL education or early childhood special education, and those who work or plan to work in high-need Chicago-area schools.
