The Scholarship project, initiated in 1963, consists of a Junior Auxiliary committee who receives resumes from upcoming graduates. Winners are chosen and scholarships donated toward their education. Many of our scholarships reward students annually, up to four years in college. Junior Auxiliary gives over $12,250 of scholarship donations annually, both to our recipients from this year and those continuing to receive stipends through their four years of college.
In addition to our local Junior Auxiliary chapter scholarship program, additional scholarships are available through NAJA. Begun in 1962, the NAJA Scholarship Program has awarded more than 476 grants totaling over $1,038,000 for graduate study in fields which address the special needs of children and youth. The Betty W. Robbins Endowed Scholarship was established in 1995 by the Robbins family in memory of Betty Robbins of Ruston, Louisiana. For additional information: www.najanet.org/
