Board of Supervisors' Scholarship

Formerly County Tuition Assistance Program
(Jones County (Dual students only), Greene County, Jasper County, and Smith County )

The Board of Supervisors Scholarship will be awarded for tuition only (fees, books, lab fees, meals, dorm, etc. are NOT included) if a balance remains after all applicable federal grants, state grants, and scholarships have been awarded.

The scholarship is available for 70 hours maximum toward any degree or certificate program.

If additional aid is received after the scholarship award has been posted, the scholarship amount may be subject to change.

The Board of Supervisors Scholarship applies only to students attending JCJC and is non-transferable.

Each semester’s award requires completion of course work, regardless of the grade earned. If the student voluntarily withdraws or is withdrawn by the college due to excessive absences, the student will be liable for any pro-rated balance due. Outstanding balances may affect the student’s ability to enroll in future courses.

This scholarship is non-refundable.
