    CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
    For the fourth consecutive year, the Chicago chapter of the National

    reviewing application packets received from hundreds of students across
    the Chicagoland area.

    ?In this challenging economic environment, we are proud to provide
    assistance to students who can use a little extra money toward college,?
    said Margaret Redd, president, NAAIA Chicago. ?Reading through these
    students? stories of pushing past adversity and staying focused on
    success inspires our members and strengthens our commitment to doing all
    that we can to assist.?

    NAAIA Chicago has extended its deadline for applications for its 2012
    scholarships to April 19, when all submissions must be postmarked.
    Applicants will be judged on GPA, ACT score, community involvement and a
    compelling essay that demonstrates financial need. To download an
