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 and high school transcript, (SAT/ACT scores can be submitted for bonus points), top applicants will be invited to interview with the scholarship committee.
