The Jackie Robinson Foundation (JRF) Scholarship program awards grants of up to $30,000 over four years to outstanding high school graduates. The award is expected to complement the financial aid students receive from their colleges or universities.
Awardees will also receive extensive, hands-on mentoring and support services such as the “42 Strategies for Success Curriculum.” This four-year program teaches JRF Scholars how to navigate their college environments, explore career options, develop leadership skills, and embrace a commitment to service. Scholars are also financially sponsored to attend JRF’s annual four-day “Mentoring and Leadership Conference” in New York City and other regional events throughout the year.
The JRF scholarship allows awardees to attend the undergraduate school of their choice.
The application opens November 1, 2020 and closes February 1, 2021.
