Scholarships are a unique way for Junior Achievement to say "We believe in your students." Through the generosity of our sponsors, we are proud to present the following scholarship opportunities for the 2020-2021 school year.
Junior Achievement of the Chisholm Trail offers scholarships to area students who have participated in a JA program during high school. Scholarships are awarded each spring to deserving and hardworking students and to date, we have awarded over $1.3 million to area students. Scholarship winners are selected on the basis of scholastic ability, participation in JA programs, as well as other organizational or extracurricular activities. Students are evaluated on achievement, leadership, college and career potential, and financial need. After submitting an application, teacher recommendation letter, transcript, and SAT/ACT scores, top applicants are invited to interview with the scholarship committee.
Scholarship recipients will be awarded one of either two scholarships:
- The $10,000 Robert and Catherine Alexander Scholarship
- The $12,000 John W. and Kay L. Spruill Leadership Scholarship
Eligibility requirements include:
- Participation in a Junior Achievement high school program in our JA Area
- Currently be a high school senior.
- Submit a completed application
- Submit a teacher recommendation letter
- Submit high school transcript
- Submit SAT/ACT scores no later than March 27, 2020.
- Have a GPA of 3.0 or higher
- Finalists must participate in an interview with the scholarship committee.
