Hundreds of Scholarships Available for JJC Students: Apply by April 1

JJC students are encouraged to apply now for scholarships that will be awarded for the 2016/2017 school year. Scholarships, like grants, are funds for college that students do not have to repay, unlike student loans. student stock shot

Last year, JJC awarded $848,000 in scholarships to students.  Scholarships, provided by donors, are awarded on a wide variety of criteria including academic standing, leadership, specialized talents, ethnic origin, financial needs and more.

Students can visit, register with their JJC student ID, review what scholarships they are eligible for and then complete their application. The deadline is April 1.
