The Naperville Newcomers and Neighbors Club is a local organization whose mission is to help others within our community through social, educational, and charitable opportunities. , we offer financial support to three outstanding local graduates that share our values.
A $5,000 scholarship will be awarded to one to three high school seniors who attend school in either District 203 or 204. These student leader/s will have demonstrated the values of education and volunteerism within the community to “pay it forward” to greater Naperville. Each student will receive a one-time scholarship of $5,000 toward their education at the College of DuPage.
Our two main criteria for being awarded this scholarship are:
- Helping others in the community: Your community service could be a singular volunteer opportunity where you stepped up to make a difference in the life of someone in need. It could be your involvement as a part of an organization that helps to make a difference in the lives of others. Or it could be a community service project that you developed and completed on your own.
- You want to further your education: We are focusing on students who are choosing to attend the College of DuPage to earn an Associate’s degree, which will be transferable to any 4-year university.
Please complete the attached Naperville Newcomers and Neighbors Club/Driskill Foundation $5,000 Scholarship form and send it to the address on the form.

Naperville Newcomers and Neighbors Club (NNNC), in partnership with the Driskill Foundation, is excited to announce the winner of its annual scholarship. This year’s $5,000 scholarship winner is Robert Elkins, a senior at Waubonsie High School who is going to continue his education as a full-time student at College of DuPage where he intends to study Psychology.
Robert’s goal is to then transfer to a university and eventually attend medical school. “I want to be able to assist as many people as possible with their mental health,” Robert tells us. Robert was chosen as the 2020 recipient of the NNNC Scholarship not only for his remarkable grade point average but especially for his significant volunteerism - to his school, his church and his community!
Congratulations to Robert for all his incredible achievements and best wishes for his continued success! NNNC has awarded scholarships to deserving local high school graduates yearly, most recently with the addition of a matching grant from the Driskill Foundation.
