US JCI SENATE FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
2014-15 Scholarship Application <<<<<------- Application Form
Each year, the U.S. Junior Chamber International (JCI) Senate 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 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 from States that have a US JCI Senate program (see states lists to be added in July or August)) and 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©(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 January 9, 2015. In July/August a list of states that participate in this program will be posted below along with a contact (mailing address) for each state.
A panel of judge’s reviews each application received in each state and the two top ranked applications per state are forwarded to the U.S. JCI Senate Foundation. An outside, independent panel of educators reviews the applications submitted from the states and the winners of the scholarship grants are selected by that panel.
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.
Through 2015, the U.S. JCI Senate Foundation has awarded 280 grants totaling $295,000.00.
The U.S. JCI Senate Foundation is proud of all of its award recipients and, with the continued support of JCI Senators in the United States and around the world, we look forward to making an even larger number of scholarships available.
