Student Emergency Support Fund
The JCC Student Emergency Support Fund provides one-time emergency funding to curriculum and continuing education students facing an unforeseen financial crisis.
Johnston Community College Foundation works hard to raise scholarship funding for our current and future students.
Current JCC students can apply for scholarships from March 15th to May 1st of each year. Applications are accepted via Academic Works, our online scholarship portal.
Ambassadors are an exceptional group of students selected to represent the College at special events on campus and in the community. For more than 10 years the College Foundation has funded up to fifteen annual scholarships for students who have shown potential to be leaders on campus. Student ambassadors at JCC are involved in a variety of activities both on campus and in the community. Some of these activities include community service such as Habitat for Humanity, assisting with campus registration, graduation ceremonies, and various fund-raisers for the College.
Recipients of this scholarship network and develop relationships with faculty, staff, and fellow students that last a lifetime. Each student ambassador commits him or herself to one full year of service to JCC and attends an orientation and summer training session to build teamwork, communication, and character building skills.
