Junior Achievement of the Chisholm Trail offers scholarships to area students who have participated in a JA program during high school. Scholarships are awarded each spring to deserving and hardworking students and to date, we have awarded over $1.3 million to area students. Scholarship winners are selected on the basis of scholastic ability, participation in JA programs, as well as other organizational or extracurricular activities. Students are evaluated on achievement, leadership, college and career potential, and financial need. After submitting an application, teacher recommendation letter, transcript, and SAT/ACT scores, top applicants are invited to interview with the scholarship committee.
Scholarship recipients will be awarded one of either two scholarships:
• The $10,000 Robert and Catherine Alexander Scholarship
• The $12,000 John W. and Kay L. Spruill Leadership Scholarship
By being a JA volunteer and sharing your personal and professional experiences and skills with students from your community, you help them make the connection between what they are learning in school and what they will need to succeed in work and life.Learn More
