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 or a non-US Citizen in lawful immigration status 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. Please note: A student who moves to one of the three counties to attend a post-secondary 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.

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 directly to the education institution and cannot be transferred, as the amount is specific to the education institution for which the grant was awarded.

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.
