Outside Scholarships

Introduction to Outside Scholarships

Outside Scholarships are a great way to get free money for college and minimize the cost of Higher Education. Outside Scholarships are given by many different companies, organizations, and churches all across the world. The only catch is that you have to find them! Below is a great list of verified scholarships to get you started on your search. Several things to keep in mind are deadlines, criteria, and discretion. Firstly, make sure you submit your application before the scholarship deadline. Secondly, make sure you meet the criteria of the scholarship (or are very close to it). And lastly, make sure that you use discretion when searching for scholarships. Do not pay for a list of scholarships or give money in order to be entered to win a scholarship. If something looks like a scam, it probably is!

As always, if you have any questions throughout the process, please contact the Financial Aid at financialaid@jchs.edu and we would be happy to help you!

All Others—Up to $90 per semester hour or $60 per quarter hour.

Awards are limited to 120 semester hours or 180 quarter hours minus the number of  credits from a Community College (if transferred)  For example if one transfers 60 hours in from a Community College, they would be eligible for 60 credit hours of assistance from this program. 

If a student is a community college transfer and takes 12 hours in the fall  and 15 hours in the spring they would receive  12x $100 = $1200 for fall and 15 x $100= $1500 for the spring a total of $2700 for that year.  To be a community college transfer you must transfer in 60 credit hours.

How Can One Apply?

The application is available from April 2, 2012 to May 31, 2012 at http://tobacco.swcenter.edu. All supporting documents are due to our office by June 11, 2012. 

Supporting documents are: 

  1. An official transcript (sealed from the school) showing the cumulative GPA of the student as of Fall 2011.  For students in High School the transcript must show the GPA as of the end of the first semester of the student’s senior year.
  2. For entering freshmen we also need a copy of their college acceptance letter.

Employment Bonus

Once a student graduates and becomes employed full time in any locality covered by the Virginia Tobacco Commission they are eligible for an employment bonus of up to $2000 per year for each year worked in one of this localities up to the number of years they received funds from this program.  For example a student graduates, after receiving 3 years assistance from this program, and become employed in an eligible community.  If they work for 3 years they could receive $2000 per year or a total of $6000.

How is This Program Different?

In the past under the Southside Tobacco Loan Forgiveness Program a student was loaned money and if they returned and worked within Southside Virginia their loan was forgiven 1 year work = 1 year forgiveness of their loan.

Under this new program no money is loaned, the money the student receives to help pay for tuition and fees is a scholarship, if the student does not return to an eligible locality the money does not have to be paid back.  If they return to the Tobacco Region Footprint and become employed full time they will receive the employment bonus. 

Previous recipients of the Southside Tobacco Loan Forgiveness Program will have to honor the terms of their promissory notes.  These changes are from this point forward.
