Hey Eagle Families!
We have a message from JCI Senate Scholarship Program. Each one of our 2020-2021 Seniors have received this information, and we wanted to ensure you had access to it through out “Counselor’s Corner” as well. Let us know if you have any questions!
I am Jeff Driver, the Chairperson for the $1,000 Texas JCI Senate Scholarship Program. Click below to download the scholarship application form for your 2021 graduation SENIOR. Please let me know if you have any questions. Note that the deadline for submissions is January 24, 2021. Winners will be notified later in April. In addition to the National Scholarship of $1,000 the Texas JCI Senate will also award 5 $500 scholarships to Texas students.
The Foundation’s scholarship program was created in 1987 to provide scholastic funding to all eligible high school seniors who are going to continue their education at any accredited college or vocational school in the United States.
To apply for assistance, high school seniors who are U.S. citizens must submit an application to the JCI Senate state organization in which they reside. The state organization will distribute the applications, judge those returned, then forward the top two applications to the national competition coordinated by the Foundation Trustees. National winners are chosen by a panel of university level judges selected by the Foundation.
Applicants need not be children or relatives of any one affiliated with the JCI Senate organization. Awards are currently given in increments of $1,000. To date the foundation has awarded over 425 scholarships to deserving high school seniors.
