Give Something Back Foundation scholarship program available to JCA students

On April 11, 2013, Give Something Back Foundation (GSBF) announced a new PREFUNDED scholarship program that will be open to students attending traditional high schools in Will County (list attached.) The GSBF Partner School Scholarship is designed to fund the cost of college for students who are people of high character, have a high level of academic achievement and are eligible for a full Pell Grant. Students would have to participate in a non- academic program throughout their high school and college years while choosing between three partner schools: University of St. Francis (USF) in Joliet, IL, Lewis University (LU) Romeoville, IL and Blackburn College (BC) in Carlinville, IL.

Parent(s) or guardians of interested students must attend one of the following information sessions to be considered for this program:

In 2013, the decision was made to incorporate all of the traditional high schools in Will County. Mr. Carr hopes that recipients of this award will also give back in the future if their financial circumstances permit.
