Your achievements in and outside the classroom can earn you scholarship money for educational expenses. Scholarships are started by Donors and are a resource you do not repay. They are awarded for any number of reasons (academic standing, leadership, specialized talents, ethnic origin, financial need, etc.) and are available whether you are just beginning your JJC studies or are near graduation.
