Undergraduate Education Grants

The Jones Foundation assists qualified, eligible applicants with a portion of the cost for their undergraduate education at an accredited institution of their choice. There is no age restriction and applicants may attend public or private institutions, located in-state or out-of state; however, institutions providing curriculums exclusively on-line are excluded.

Undergraduate Education Grants are:

  • Need-based grants paid directly to institutions to help offset the costs of tuition, fees and books for fall and spring semesters (up to a maximum of eight).
  •  Available only to degree-seeking students, enrolled at a single institution in a minimum of 12 credit hours each semester.
  •  New applications are required each year, as grants are awarded for only one academic year at a time.

Applying for the upcoming fall and spring semesters?

Beginning May 1 through June 15 only, applications for electronic submission are available for completion. A list of all required supporting documents appears on the first page of the application and is your responsibility to have in our office no later than close of business on June 15. Additionally, you will receive a follow up email reminding you of all documents required.

It is possible that you may not have all of these documents; however, provide us with everything that you do have available.* Make sure to provide any outstanding documents as soon as available, as your application is not complete until all is received. At the close of business on June 15, IF the application is the only document received in our office, your application will be voided. The application alone will not satisfy the deadline!

*High School Seniors, if your complete, final transcript is not available, do not wait to apply. You don’t want to miss the deadline!
