CIELO Medical Scholarship Fund
We also support the CIELO (formerly National Image, Inc.) Medical Scholarship Fund program, a separate scholarship program that is organized under the Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln (CFLL), a 501(c)(3) foundation. This scholarship program is for Latino students pursuing a medical related degree from a school that is based in Sangamon County, Illinois. The foundation has established the application process. Our participation in the selection process is limited to recommending members to the selection committee who participate in the review of applications and recommend recipients to receive an award. The CFLL foundation scholarship committee makes the final determination. The award limit for 2016 was $1500 per year for up to two years. The foundation handles the distribution of funds for this scholarship program.

SIU Medical School Scholarship
The city of Springfield, Illinois is the home of one of only two special medical districts established in the state of Illinois by the Illinois Legislature. It is generally believed that the single greatest influence in the economic development in the greater Springfield area will be motivated by the creation of this medical district. CIELO intends to create a new SIU Medical School Scholarship program to ensure that Latinos have a roll in this development. Efforts in the future to establish a funding source to support this scholarship are under development. When established, this scholarship will them become available.
If you are interested in donating to or participating in the development of this scholarship program, we encourage you to contact us via email to the board or letter to our organization.
