Scholarship Application


Scholarship Program

JA of the Chisholm Trail offers scholarships to area seniors who have participated in a JA program during high school. These scholarships are awarded each spring to many deserving and hardworking students. To date, over a quarter of a million dollars has been awarded to area students.
Winners of scholarships 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, transcript, and SAT/ACT scores, top applicants are invited to interview with the scholarship committee.
Each JA scholarship is valued at a minimum of $500 per semester, payable for up to 4-8 semesters or four years. The actual semester amount is determined by the type of scholarship received. All scholarships are annually renewable, pending minimum GPA requirements are met.
