Ever since SJI welcomed its first class in 1993, we have given a scholarship to every student participant who returns to college in the fall. The amount of those scholarships has always been the same: $500.
But this year, as the SJI family and the rest of the world begin to emerge from more than a year of dealing with the COVID-19 global pandemic, we want to do something more. Students in the SJI Class of 2021 who return to school in the fall will receive $1,000 scholarships.
“Given that we are conducting the program online this year because of COVID issues, we decided to put some of the money that usually would go toward student travel to student scholarships instead,” said Sandy Rosenbush, one of the program’s co-directors. “There’s no better investment we can make than in the future of our students.”
