The Glen Ellyn Carnival High School Scholarship Program Plus Community Local Non-Profit Organizations Grants

Tilt-a-whirls, cotton candy and rock n’ roll are just a few ways our new scholarship program and grants for local non-profits are funded.   A portion of the carnival's proceeds will fund The Glen Ellyn Carnival High School Scholarship program & local non-profit community grants.  A Scholarship and Grant program originally created by the Glen Ellyn Jaycees and later transformed into the Village Fair Committee, who awarded local students scholarship funds through the decades.

The Glen Ellyn Chamber of Commerce awarded $10,000 in scholarships from last year’s carnival and additionally providing local non-profits grants for a combined sum of $10,000 for their contributing efforts to the festival of Glen Ellyn and their work in the surrounding community. The hope is to continue this effort every year with the carnival proceeds.
