Learn More About Our Annual Scholarship

Are you a McHenry County graduating high school senior who will be enrolled in a two-year to four-year institution in 2024? Do you need help paying for schooling or supplies? You are not alone. College is not cheap, but we don’t want that to stop you from pursuing this irreplaceable experience.

At Vaclavek Hartman Vaclavek, we have experienced first-hand the benefits of higher education.

That is why we are offering a $500 scholarship to help two (2) McHenry County graduating high school seniors with plans to attend a community college, a four year university, law school, or other institute of higher education.

So, what do you have to do?

The attorneys at Vaclavek Hartman Vaclavek have called McHenry County home, collectively, for decades. We love so many things that are special to the County, from spending time on the Fox River to visiting local Farmers’ Markets to all of the beautiful parks and restaurants we visit. Our community means a lot to us, and that’s why we make every effort to give back to it through community participation and now by sponsoring a scholarship for students in the community.

Our number one goal is to stand by each client’s side, every step of the way. To apply for this scholarship, we are asking you to tell us about someone that has stood by your side every step of the way; someone who has made it possible for you to take the next step in your journey.

If you are a McHenry County high school senior and are enrolled in a two to four-year institution in 2024, apply today for the $500 Vaclavek Hartman Vaclavek Scholarship.
