At JA of Lincoln, everything we do is about equipping young people with the tools they need to succeed. From kindergarten through high school, we work with community partners to give them the financial literacy and skills to navigate a changing economy. When they then take their next steps to college and beyond, we’re always looking for ways to continue to support them.
To that end, every year JA of Lincoln awards $500-$1,000 scholarships to JA alumni who are getting ready for college. To quality, a students must be a senior in school, be graduating in the top half of his or her class, and have participated in a JA program, either in the classroom or through JA SPARK or the JA Stock Market Challenge. We’re looking for those students who have demonstrated academic excellence, extracurricular involvement, and service to their community– in short, the whole package! The award is to help with direct education expenses, such as tuition, books, and room and board at any accredited post-secondary educational institution, including trade school and community college, for any field of study.
Do you know a student who deserves this kind of support? Then help us spread the word and make sure they know about this opportunity! Scholarships must be postmarked by March 16th.
