PNCC strives to offer students an opportunity to exercise leadership skills, learn relationship building, and teamwork by participating in the Fiesta del Sol planning.
For over two decades, the Guadalupe A. Reyes Fiesta del Sol Scholarship Program has awarded over $1.1 MM on scholarships to students from the Southwest side of Chicago. Our scholarship program is led by one of the Fiesta del Sol committees, the University Round Table (URT). The URT is also the leader of the Fiesta del Sol College Week, where students from the Chicagoland area have the opportunity to receive valuable resources (in English and Spanish) to start or continue their college pathway. The URT’s mission is to provide necessary resources for underrepresented students and their families, with a focus on successful recruitment, college access, affordability, retention, and college completion. The URT is comprised of representatives from institutions of postsecondary education and college-access advocates in the Chicago metropolitan area and greater Illinois.
