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. 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 an applicable program, 3) student’s narrative properly explains the merits/benefits of the program.
