The Jefferson Band Booster Club (JBBC) is excited to offer a scholarship program which awards grants to eligible Jefferson High School Band students. This program is designed to offer financial assistance for students wanting to expand their musical knowledge and/or participate in eligible band related opportunities. Scholarship grants will be offered each trimester of the school year. During the third trimester of each school year, applications will also be accepted from the marching band drum major, flag team members, and twirler. Band directors, band secretary, and flag advisors can provide input; however, members of the JBBC committee will have the final say in determining the grant award recipients. When determining grant award recipients, emphasis will be placed on three key points - 1) form is complete and turned in on time, 2) student submitted request for applicable program, 3) student's narrative properly explains the merits/benefits of the program.

Applicant must comply with these rules and guidelines, as noted on the application form:
