Jackson County Community Outreach is very proud to announce that we will be awarding 23 scholarships to students in Jackson County!
Thanks to generous donations from businesses and industries in Jackson County, we have been able to increase our scholarship allotment from $28,000 in 2019 to $30,000 for 2020.
These scholarships are awarded, exclusively, to seniors who attend high schools in any of the three school systems in Jackson County. The breakdown of scholarships is listed below.
JCCO Scholarships (16 @ $1000 each) – Four students at each high school have the opportunity to receive this scholarship, provided that they meet the criteria, through the application and interview process.
JCCO TECHNICAL-INDUSTRIAL Scholarships (5 @ $2000 each) – Five students who are planning to attend a technical college and qualify based on specific technical-industrial skillsets training.
TOM LEWIS LEADERSHIP Scholarship (1 @ $1500) – One student will receive this scholarship by meeting the criteria for the JCCO scholarship, and showing evidence of leadership in school, community, and or church activities.

**Please note that the JCCO scholarships are to be divided among the four high schools (based on student qualification). The JCCO Technical-Industrial, Tom Lewis Leadership, and Jim Scott Visionary scholarships will be awarded to the most highly qualified applicants, regardless of the high school in which they are enrolled.
