JBER CYP Scholarship

Completed Application Packets are due by March 31 of each year.

For the first time, JBER Community Club has created a separate competitive category and is awarding a continuing education scholarship to a JBER CYP employee. On-base child and youth programs employees will be graded in their own category without competition from military dependents. 

You will still fill out the same application and provide the same additional required documents listed as part of the application process and below on this webpage for reference. 

Scholarship Committee Selection Process

Completed Application Packets are due by March 31 of each year.

The Scholarship Selection Committee determines the number of scholarships and their value in relation to funds available for disbursement. Each application packet will be reviewed by the Selection Committee. The committee is made up of committee members that are part of the JBER and education community. All of the components in the application packet are scored based on a numerical scale. Areas of assessment include:

  1. Weighted GPA

  2. Essay

  3. Reference Letters

  4. Activities, non-academic achievements, community service, and academic achievements

  5. 5 points will be awarded if the application is a member of the JBER Community Club or the spouse/son/daughter of a JCC member.

The committee reviews each application and awards scholarships anonymously. Scholarships will be awarded without regard to race, religion, sex, age, color, martial status, lawful political affiliation, labor organization membership, or physical handicaps. All decisions made by the Selection Committee are final. 

Scholarship recipients will be notified of selection by the JCC Scholarship Chair by email no later than May 1. At this time the Scholarship Recipients will be required to complete a Scholarship Disbursement Form that must be returned to the JCC Scholarship Chair by May 15. 

If awarded, the students must show proof of military affiliation (in form of a Military ID card) and proof of enrollment at an institution of higher learning. The scholarship funds are awarded directly to the student after enrollment in a secondary education institution or trade school has been verified. Instructions on verification will be provided to the award recipients. The Scholarship Awards Ceremony will be held in May with further details released at a later date.
