Our September Jeans BeCause recipient is the Alberico Scholarship Foundation.
In memory of Martin and Julius Alberico, the Alberico Scholarship Foundation seeks to improve the path to education for deserving college-bound students of talent, merit and need through the administration of educational grants.
In 2007, the Martin G. Alberico Scholarship Foundation was established as a 501(c)(3) non-for-profit organization. In 2009, the Foundation began granting scholarships to college bound high school seniors. Since then, they have awarded over $40,000 in scholarships to Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana students.
The memory of Julius (Butch) Alberico was included in the foundation, following the family’s sudden and tragic loss of their brother. It is because of his lasting impact that they sought to include his memory with that of Martin’s in promoting education and promise for deserving students. It is for these reasons, and many more, that the Martin G. Alberico Scholarship Foundation has evolved to the Alberico Scholarship Foundation.
