Keyes2Life Scholarship Fund

Established 2016

keyes_corpiaThe Keyes2Life Scholarship Fund provides scholarships to high school seniors who have an interest in pursuing a health career and are dedicated to improving the communities in which they live. This dedication is demonstrated by providing letters of reference from community leaders and/or high school counselors as well as an original community project which answers the question, “What are your Keyes2Life?” Recipients are chosen by a panel of judges and awards are presented at the Keyes2Life Annual Scholarship Award Dinner.

The Keyes2Life Scholarship was created by Dr. Corpia Keyes, a graduate of Northwestern University, Feinberg School of Medicine who currently practices as an Internal Medicine Physician. Dr. Keyes is now a resident of the Fox River Valley community and provides in home services to individuals who would otherwise not be able to remain in the comfort of their own homes.

A proud graduate of the Chicago Public School system, and a recipient of several academic and community scholarships, Dr. Keyes is dedicated to medicine, education, community and helping others accomplish goals once thought unattainable.

This scholarship will not only provide financial assistance to our aspiring youth who exhibit the same dedication, but will also empower and encourage them to take the first step in impacting the communities in which they live.

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

We chose the Community Foundation because of its reputation. It’s well known, established and we can trust them to do the job for us.

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

Being a part of the Community Foundation scholarship committee is the highlight of my year. For many, a scholarship from the Community Foundation is the reason they are able to continue reaching for their dreams and changing the future of our world. I hope each recipient knows just how inspirational they are to those of us who are lucky enough to read their stories.
