JA of Northern California Glenlyon Scholarship
Junior Achievement of Northern California is pleased to announce the JA Glenlyon Scholarship program. The program provides college-bound students with a $5,000, 4-year renewable scholarship aimed to inspire and support college success.
Funds for the JA Glenlyon Scholarship program were generously provided by an anonymous donor who wants to remove financial barriers to higher education for Northern California students. New scholarships will be awarded each year, while existing recipients, who remain in good standing, will be eligible to renew their scholarship award for up to four years.
High school seniors are eligible to apply for the scholarship. Requirements include that the student participate in a JA program, volunteer with JA, have a minimum of 2.75 GPA, and enroll full time at an accredited college or university.
