Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher Academic Scholarship Program

On an annual basis, the Housing Authority of Joliet awards multiple academic scholarships to enable Public Housing Program or Housing Choice Voucher Program residents to continue their education.

Scholarships range from $500 to $1,250 per semester and are available for new enrollment or continuing enrollment individuals in an accredited post-secondary educational institution, vocational, trade, technical, barber, beauty, or cosmetology school. Award is based on an eligible applicant’s financial need and academic merit.

Additionally, at the time of scholarship application submission and at the time of scholarship award, a recipient must be a legally authorized household member with the Housing Authority of Joliet’s Public Housing Program or Housing Choice Voucher Program.
