Jefferson Community College staff unveils
three new scholarships for new students


WATERTOWN, N.Y. (Dec. 15, 2020) – Jefferson Community College (JCC) has announced three new scholarships for new students who start classes on Jan. 25.

New scholarships are the Now More Than Ever Scholarship, for new students ages 20-24 who enroll after Dec. 3; the Future Teacher Scholarship, for new students who major in childhood education or early childhood and enroll after Dec. 3; and a Transfer Scholarship, for new students who transfer to JCC from another institution after Dec. 15.

Awards range up to $1,000. To be eligible for one of JCC’s new scholarships, students must enroll in a minimum of six credit hours. Eligibility criteria apply.

“During these unprecedented times, we want to encourage students to pursue their educational and career goals rather than put them on hold,” said James P.R. Ambrose, dean of enrollment at JCC. “We hope by offering additional scholarships, students will take advantage of the even deeper cost savings of attending a community college as well as the quiet time to get an education that will demonstrate preparedness to prospective employers and position them at the top later.”

Jefferson Community College offers more than 40 academic programs, and applying for admission is free.
