Background - U.S. JCI Senate Foundation Scholarship Grants

Each year, the U.S. JCI Senate Foundation ("the Foundation") grants $1,000 scholarships to graduating high school seniors who plan to continue their education at accredited post-secondary colleges, universities or vocational schools. The number of grants awarded annually is at the discretion of the U.S. JCI Senate Foundation and must be used for educational expenses in the first year of full-time study. Checks awarded will be made out in the name of the recipient and the educational institution of the recipient's choice.

Applications must come from high school students who are U.S. Citizens graduating from U.S. accredited schools. This may include state approved home school and state approved GED programs, cyber schools, and overseas U.S. approved schools.

The Foundation is a fully qualified, IRS approved 501(c)(3) foundation. Our IRS Tax ID Number is 38-2680101. All contributions to the Foundation are deductible for federal income and estate tax purposes.

From September to November of each year, each JCI Senate state organization (or foundation) distributes to schools and boards of education throughout their state the necessary application forms for determination of the recipients of  scholarship grants. The deadline for return of the completed application forms to the state chairperson is at his or her individual discretion, and can vary from as early as December 1st to as late as the following January 15th. The deadline is shown on each state's application cover page.

Qualifications for the Foundation's scholarship grants are as stated above. No limit is set on the number of grant applications that can be submitted by students attending any given secondary educational institution. Although applications are judged at the state level first, eligibility is based on a student's state of residence rather than the location of the college, university, or vocational school the student plans to attend.

An outside,  independent panel of judges reviews each application received in each state and the two top ranked applications per state are forwarded to the Foundation. Another outside, independent panel of educators reviews the applications submitted from the states and the winners of the scholarship grants are selected by that panel.

Again, please note that it is the individual state JCI Senate organizations (or in some cases, foundations) that distribute, collect, and arrange for judging of scholarship grant applications.

Again, please note: YOU MUST SUBMIT ALL SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION TO THE JCI SENATE (OR FOUNDATION) CONTACT FOR THE STATE IN WHICH THE STUDENT APPLICANT LIVES.
