The following is a summary of the different options available to those seeking financial assistance for their JSU Summer tuition.
National NCSY/JSU Financial Aid
Financial aid is available from National NCSY/JSU based on need, and is given out on a first come, first served basis. In ordered to be considered for financial assistance, you must fill out the online application completely as well as the financial aid application and submit your most recent tax return. The average award amount is within the range of $100 – $1,000 depending on how you qualify. Please contact jsu.org for further inquiries. All JSU TJJ programs are ineligible for financial aid from National NCSY/JSU since these trips are already heavily subsidized for public school teens.
