JCPS Community Scholarship Fund 

The Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) Community Scholarship Fund was founded by Superintendent Dr. Marty Pollio to invest in the futures of our own rising stars: the students who have shaped, inspired and lifted us throughout our journeys as educators. It is the first ever JCPS scholarship fund on behalf of JCPS employees and community members.

Who Will Benefit From The JCPS Community Scholarship Fund?

The Scholarship Fund will provide assistance in the form of grants to help defray expenses of students graduating from any public high school in Jefferson County and attending a college, university or post-secondary educational institution. Recipients will be selected based on a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher and demonstrated financial need. Scholarship assistance from the Fund shall be used to help cover the full cost or any portion of the cost of any or all of the following: (1) tuition; (2) books; (3) academic fees; (4) room and board expenses for on-campus housing made available through the post-secondary educational institution; and (5) any equipment purchased through the post-secondary institution. Through the JCPS Community Scholarship Fund, together we aim to support students whose drive and ambition cannot be barred by perceived limitations; and whose pathways to success are greater than any obstacles.

As a testament to his leadership and vision, Dr. Marty Pollio is the first administrator to make a donation—and he’s calling on YOU to join him in his effort to make a difference in the lives of our students. Dr. Pollio believes that as administrators, educators, and citizens we each have the power to influence positive change in our schools and our communities. As a donor, you will help secure brighter futures for our students while further establishing JCPS as a leader in public education.
