Scholarship Description

Many promising students are unable to pursue higher education on account of the financial burden a college education presents. The Jackson Laboratory, through the JAX College Scholarship Program, will award a $10,000 scholarship to three students from underserved backgrounds who will pursue a college degree and aspire to a career in biomedicine. This program is open to graduating high school seniors who reside in Connecticut, Maine, or in Sacramento County, California.
