2016-2017 Scholarship Program

United States JCI Senate Foundation Scholarship Application

Eligibility: Graduating high school seniors in the United States, where that state has an active JCI Senate program (see http://www.usjcisenate.org  [under scholarship] or http://www.usjcisenatefoundation.org  for a listing of eligible states).  You must be a U.S. citizen to apply for this scholarship.

The NYS JCI Senate will award $150 for 1st Place and $100 for 2nd Place
These 2 Winners will be forwarded to the National Competition

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 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.

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.

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.

Form located at:

Scholarship Application

Mail Completed Applications to:

David Stern
JCI Senate Scholarship Chairman
9 Currie Court
Ballston Spa, NY 12020

There is no guarantee for a specific number of scholarships to be given out. More info on the form.
