JoLynn Blanton loved to teach and was an educator for nearly a decade. This scholarship is a continuation of her support and passion for education.

Financial aid has been failing to keep up with the ever-increasing yearly costs of college. 

This gap is leaving low-income students with a yearly college price tag that doesn’t fulfill the bulk of their financial aid needs. 

During the pandemic, the percent of low-income students enrolling in higher education fell by nearly 29%. This massive decrease is due to the additional financial stressors that the pandemic caused for so many families, especially families that were already low-income prior to the pandemic.  

This scholarship is for a hardworking, low-income student that is either a high school senior or an undergraduate student. 

Any low-income high school senior or undergraduate student may apply for this scholarship.  

To apply, tell us how education has shaped your view of the world.
