It’s the time of year when high school students have to make some serious decisions about their future plans, and Junior Achievement of Lincoln is here to help! It’s no secret that paying for college is getting tougher all the time, and we want to do our part to make it a little easier for some of the best and brightest students who are taking the JA message to heart.
As we have in the past, JA of Lincoln is offering several scholarships ranging from $500-$1,000 to Lincoln-area students who have participated in our programs and are headed to college. We hope you’ll help us spread the word to all our JA alumni! Especially in this economy, nobody wants to miss out on some free cash for school.
In order to be eligible, students must be graduating from high school in the top 50% of their class before June 30, 2012. They must be a past or present participant in any JA class at their high school, the Driven Youth Invitational program, or the Future CEO Tournament. They must also complete a 500-word personal essay, and have everything postmarked by March 23, 2012.
