We are excited to announce our participation in Notre Dame Day, when the global Notre Dame family will come together to celebrate what each of us loves most about the University.
Notre Dame Club And Scholarship Foundation Highlights:
Each January, Notre Dame Clubs around the country submit annual reports to the Notre Dame Alumni Association. Below are highlights from the Notre Dame Club of Chicago annual report. Thank YOU for making the following possible.

Since 1990, the NDCC Scholarship Foundation has awarded over $4.2 million in scholarships to Notre Dame Undergraduates and Law students from the greater Chicago area.
The NDCC Scholarships are funded via annual contributions from the Chicago Club, donations made directly to the Foundation, and investment returns.
In addition, the Foundation selects students from the greater Chicago area to receive several privately-funded scholarships, and includes these students in the NDCC Scholar programming.
We currently have about 70 Scholars on campus including the Undergrads and Law Scholars.
Since 1990, the NDCC Scholarship Foundation has assisted more than 500 students to realize their dreams of attending Notre Dame.
Summer Service Learning Program Summary:
The Summer Service Learning Program (SSLP) is a three-credit theology course with an eight-week immersion for Notre Dame students who are interested in expanding their education by working with and learning from persons who are marginalized in society.
Since 1980, students participating in the Notre Dame Center for Social Concerns’ Summer Service Learning Program have spent their summers volunteering in the Chicagoland area.
In the past 35 years, the Notre Dame Club of Chicago SSLP coordinators have helped host over 200 SSLP students. And, since 2002, the Notre Dame Club of Chicago has contributed over $144,800 to sponsor 67 SSLP students and cover transportation and other program costs.
