The J & J Trujillo Memorial Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

Amy and Anna Trujillo have established The J & J Trujillo Memorial Scholarship Program to assist students from Arizona, New Mexico and Minnesota to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.

This program is administered by Scholarship America┬«, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to The J & J Trujillo Memorial Scholarship Program must be:

  • Residents of Arizona, New Mexico, or Minnesota.
  • High school seniors or graduates, or current postsecondary undergraduates, who plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited trade or vocational-technical school for the entire upcoming academic year.

Award Amounts
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a award up to $12,500. The award amount cannot exceed the total cost of tuition, fees, books and supplies.

Awards are one-time only. Past recipients may not reapply.

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

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does Amy or Anna Trujillo play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.

Applicants will be notified in mid April. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.

Payment of Scholarships
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Amy and Anna Trujillo. Payments are made in one installment in early August.

As part of your application, you must upload a current, complete transcript of grades. Grade reports are not accepted. Transcripts must display student name, school name, grades and credit hours for each course, and term in which each course was taken.

One online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf no later than March 1, 2021 3:00 pm central time.

Your application is not considered complete unless all required documents are submitted electronically.
