JCCO Scholarships

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 $21,500 in 2017 to $30,000 for 2018.

These scholarships are awarded, exclusively, to seniors who attend high schools in any of the 3 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.
