Ilan Hurtado Memorial Scholarship

The family of Ilan Hurtado are pleased to announce an annual scholarship in Ilan’s name of $5,000, to be granted to an elementary student of a single parent household.

Ilan attended the Montessori School of Lake Forest from the age of 4 until his death at 9.  The MSLF community had been a big part of Ilan and his family’s life, and they are pleased to be able to support other children in having the same positive experience.

Remembering Ilan Hurtado (2004-2014)
