Uchicago Odyssey Scholars


As part of the University’s comprehensive approach to educational access, the Odyssey Scholarship Program provides a path to a need-blind, loan-free education for talented students who otherwise would not be able to afford one of the world’s top universities.

In return, Odyssey Scholars help increase the range of perspectives in the UChicago community. Conversations about the world’s most pressing problems – from cancer to criminal justice reform to climate change – are deeper and more productive when they include students who reflect a broad spectrum of human experience.
