JEF administers and awards several scholarship funds each year. Scholarships have been established in many categories including academic, financial need, Memorial, endowed, career-based and community-oriented. In addition, JEF awards a $2,000 scholarship to one senior from each of the six high schools who have overcome difficult personal circumstances and poor academic performance. This scholarship goes to a student who would have little chance of going to college and has dramatically turned their academic performance around.
JEF welcomes in-kind donations of school supplies and backpacks for students in need.
JEF supports programs that help students complete high school and prepare for college.
