Although the Elgin Sports Hall of Fame has several missions, one of its main focuses is to provide scholarship money to student athletes. These young women and men must live in and/or attend high school in Elgin, have excelled in their area of competition, and are seeking to further their education at the college level.
Thanks to the generosity of those who have supported the Scholarship Fund through 2022, $724,700 has been contributed to advancing the education of these fine Elgin area students (606 to date!). As of 2022, $1,700 scholarships are presented to 30 student athletes annually. Recipients are from Elgin Academy, Elgin High School, Harvest Christian Academy, Hampshire High School, Larkin High School, St. Edward Central Catholic High School, Streamwood High School, South Elgin High School, Burlington Central, and Westminster Christian School.
