The Jones Foundation assists qualified, eligible applicants (as defined under About Education Assistance) with a portion of the cost for undergraduate education at an accredited institution of their choice. There is no age restriction and applicants may attend public, private, community or technical institutions located in or out of state. Study Abroad programs and institutions exclusively providing on-line curricula will not be considered.

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 in a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester at a single institution.
  • Multiple family members may apply; however, an application and information specific to each student must be provided.
  • Not limited to one-time application. If denied previously, re-application is permitted should you so choose.
