A good future for our students and for Vermont requires access to higher education. JSC offers an excellent opportunity for an education which enables our graduates to become leaders in their careers and communities. Over the next decade, JSC hopes to sustain and strengthen that opportunity.
One of our primary goals is to fund a scholarship endowment to help assure a college education for capable and dedicated students.
College is a life-shaping experience and a key to financial security (statistically, college graduates earn 80% more over their lifetimes than they would with only a high school education). College helps people grow intellectually, financially, and personally. College provides the educators, businessmen, bankers, innkeepers, environmental workers, and writers who form the fabric of our society.
Yet access to a JSC education is increasingly difficult for ordinary families. The State of Vermont provides less than 20% of the annual operating costs of the state colleges.
