The William P. Caputo Scholarship Fund will award a $1,000 scholarship to a Prospect Heights School District 23 graduate this June.

High school seniors who graduated from MacArthur Middle School in Prospect Heights and are going on to a university, college, vocational, technical, or training school are invited to apply for the scholarship.


Applications are available at the college placement offices of Hersey, Wheeling, and Saint Viator high schools and online at www.d23.org.

Submit applications to District 23, 700 North Schoenbeck Road, Prospect Heights, IL 60070, to the attention of the Scholarship Committee by April 15.

The scholarship recipient will be selected based on academic performance or improvement during high school.

No minimum grade point average is required to apply. Applicants must complete the scholarship application form, submit a copy of their high school transcript and write a short personal response to one of three essay prompts listed on the application form. Letters of recommendation are optional.

The scholarship recipient will be notified in May. The award presentation will take place at the District 23 graduation ceremony in June.

The William P. Caputo Scholarship Fund was established in 2007 to honor the memory of longtime District 23 board member Bill Caputo.

The scholarship committee plans to award the scholarship annually.

Donations to the scholarship fund can be sent to the attention of Andre Velazquez, Manager, Harris Bank and Trust Company, 215 E. Palatine Road, Arlington Heights, IL 60004.
