New scholarship fund provides valuable assistance to JCCC student veterans.

Veterans and their families serve and sacrifice. They are our family, friends, mentors, business leaders, security personnel, teachers, certified professionals as well as present serving families. Years of military training and their GI Bill can make great things possible.

Veterans return from service with many practical and educational skills and benefits. However, costs to cover education for building a new career or upgrading skills can be daunting. You can help with this transition.

Make a tax-deductible gift to the Pay It Forward Student Veteran Scholarship to honor a living or deceased family member or loved one from past wars or conflicts. All the while, you'll be encouraging and thanking current Student Veterans by supporting their success.

JCCC is committed to Veterans who will continue as vibrant leaders. Our campus currently has nearly 600 Student Veterans enrolled in classes. According to Student Veterans of America, 2 million Veterans were expected to use the Post-9/11 GI Bill by 2020.

Any donation will go a long way in helping JCCC Student Veterans. When you donate $500 or more to the Pay It Forward scholarship, you will be given the opportunity to present the scholarship recipient with a certificate that recognizes the Veteran your donation honors. These presentations will occur at special Student Veteran receptions throughout the academic year.
