Argonne employees can send their children to one of the world’s great intellectual destinations: The University of Chicago. With a community that has earned more than 85 Nobel Prizes and a rigorous curriculum that empowers students to challenge the status quo, UChicago consistently ranks as one of the best universities in the country.
As a benefit for working at the lab, Argonne employees whose children are accepted to the undergraduate College receive 50 percent tuition remission for four years. In addition, each year the University awards full tuition merit scholarships to highly qualified children of lab employees. These benefits help attract top talent with families to work at Argonne.
