Book Stipends & Scholarships

Each year, the Jackson (MS) Alumnae Chapter provides thousands of dollars in scholarship awards to qualified high school and college students who reside in service: metropolitan Jackson, Rankin County and Tougaloo Community. Most of our awards are for those enrolled as full-time students with grade point averages of 3.25 each semester based on a 4.0 system, or its equivalent.

Jackson (MS) Alumnae Chapter administers three different types of stipend and scholarships (see below). An applicant who is selected as a candidate to receive an award must attend an interview conducted by the Scholarship Committee.
