Presidential & Trail Blazer Scholarships

New this year – one application for two scholarship opportunities!

We are looking for the next student leader scholars at JWCC. Presidential and Trail Blazer Scholars are high achieving leaders, both in and out of the classroom. Scholarship students are college ambassadors, participate with Student Government, various JWCC events, and are student leaders on campus.

Students will compete for three two-year Presidential full in-district tuition Scholarships and twenty-five Trail Blazer Leadership Scholarships.

The competition involves an interview process with JWCC faculty, students and administrators. High school grade point average, and application attachments will also be factors in the competition.

  • Presidential Scholarships: 3.75 minimum GPA- full-tuition, 3 awarded each year, renewable for 2 years
  • Trail Blazer Scholarships: 3.0 minimum GPA- half-tuition, 25 awarded each year, renewable for 2 years.

Students that meet these requirements should apply by filling out the form.
