When it comes to fostering educational excellence, students of Jordan School District are fortunate to have strong community support. Thanks to generous donations from private groups like the Bingham Canyon Lions Club, Jordan Education Foundation (JEF) is able to administer a number of endowed scholarships. Endowed scholarships allow JEF to award the interest from a principal investment for a scholarship(s). The initial investment remains untouched and whatever interest on the investment is earned over a period of time can be given as a scholarship based on the original scholarship criteria.
An Annual Scholarship is made by individuals, businesses or other foundations who care about your children, their education, and our collective future. These people donate a specific amount for a student scholarship, based on previously determined criteria. This donation is awarded each year. For an Annual Scholarship to be ongoing the donor(s) needs to make yearly contributions.
Memorial Scholarships are legacy scholarships created in recognition and Memoriam of a student or faculty member of Jordan School District. These scholarships are funded by private individuals or groups and then managed by the Foundation.
