Unique Insurance of Niles, Illinois, is a provider of commercial and personal auto insurance that services customers throughout Illinois and Indiana. In March 2015, the company announced the launch of its Unique Insurance Company Scholarship for DePaul University students.
Designed to benefit the university’s accounting and economics students, the scholarship includes $25,000 worth of funds for distribution among Richard H. Driehaus College of Business students each year. Eligible students include those residing in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs, and each award will consist of an amount ranging between $2,500 and $5,000. The scholarship will begin distribution in the 2015 fall trimester.
Unique Insurance president Matthew J. Dutkanych established the scholarship to encourage the academic work of local college students and advocate for DePaul University’s programs and student body. A graduate of DePaul from its master of business administration program, Dutkanych prioritizes recognizing and rewarding native Chicago students for their hard work and accomplishments.
