Posted by Admin On January - 20 - 2016

Nationwide (BlackNews.com) — Through his leadership, skill and courage, Jackie Robinson broke barriers in sports, media and business – impacting our entire society and helping to set the stage for the modern civil rights movement. For 42 years, the Jackie Robinson Foundation has continued Robinsons commitment to equal opportunity.

The Jackie Robinson Foundation (JRF) Scholarship program is designed to address the financial needs of college students and provide comprehensive mentoring services through its 42 Strategies for Success Curriculum. Once chosen from a national, selective application process, Jackie Robinson Foundation Scholars receive a generous four-year grant (up to $7,500) to attend the college or university of their choice and are enrolled in JRFs celebrated mentoring curriculum.

JRFs four-year curriculum enables students to effectively navigate the college environment, explore career options, develop leadership skills, and embrace a commitment to service. Throughout the four-year program, JRF also promotes the values and character traits embodied in the heroic life of its namesake.

The JRF scholarship is awarded to outstanding high school graduates who plan to earn a baccalaureate degree from an accredited, four-year college or university. Additional fellowships are given to JRF Scholars to pursue opportunities to work and study abroad and for post-graduate education.
