2024 applications are now closed. Thank you to everyone who applied! Winners will be announced in late June.

Scholarship applicants must be graduating high school seniors who plan to continue their education and are a resident of Palatine (60067 & 60074 zip codes).

This scholarship is designed for those who are leaders in their school and/or community. As the Jaycees strongly believe that service to humanity is the best work of life, we also value community service based leadership. Please note that while uploading a transcript is a portion of the application, this is not a GPA-based scholarship and applicants of all GPAs are highly encouraged to apply!

Applications for the 2024 Ken Blik Memorial Scholarships must be received by June 2, 2024 to be considered.

Ken Blik was a key leader and founding member of the Palatine Jaycees and was chapter President in 1958. Ken passed away in 2019 however his love for giving back to the community is memorialized in this scholarship program.
