About Education Assistance

The Jones Foundation provides financial assistance for post-secondary education services for individuals, regardless of age, provided they are a US Citizen and current resident of Coffey, Lyon or Osage County or is the dependent of a current resident, and who has continuously resided in one of these three counties for a minimum of one year immediately prior to attending a post-secondary institution. A student who moves to one of the three counties to attend an education institution prior to fulfilling the one-year residency requirement is not eligible. Attendance at an education institution in the three county area does not alone establish residency.

For students seeking assistance with education costs we offer the following assistance programs:

Each year, beginning May 1, the application will be available online and is to be returned, with all required documents, no later than June 15. Should you not have all documents, provide all that are available. Returning the application alone does not satisfy the deadline for submission.

The Jones Foundation reviews each application to determine whether qualifications and eligibility for financial assistance have been satisfied. The Foundation’s Board of Trustees, in its sole discretion, has the final decision regarding the qualifications, eligibility, and the amount of financial assistance to be awarded.  Every applicant who completes the application procedure will be given written notification as to whether the grant is awarded or denied.  All grants are paid to the school and are non-transferable.

Any information necessary to process an application will remain to the highest of confidentiality and will remain the property of the Walter S. and Evan C. Jones Foundation.
