2015-2016 Scholarship Application Available

JMC recognizes the financial burden of obtaining a college education and strives to help offset costs for students. Through our various scholarship programs, we recognize and reward students with high academic excellence, evidence of leadership and community service. Scholarship awards are made possible by generous donations from alumni and friends of the School, and these contributions benefit students in their academic pursuits. In 2014, JMC awarded a record-setting $65,000 in scholarships.

In fall 2014, JMC announced that it received a multi-million bequest that will transform the School's Photojournalism program. It is the the largest single gift ever made to Kent State University to fund student scholarships and provide experiential-learning opportunities, and brings JMC’s endowment to more than $7.6 million, a historic all-time high for the School.
