Children of officers and board members of the Richard O. Jacobson Foundation are ineligible.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Applicants will be notified in May. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in scho0l and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation.
Financial need as calculated by Scholarship America must be demonstrated for the student to receive an award.
