National JACL Scholarships

National JACL offers approximately 30 college scholarships for students who are incoming college freshmen, undergraduates and graduates, and those specializing in law and the creative/performing arts. There are also financial aid scholarships for those demonstrating a need for financial assistance.  Applicants are judged on the basis of their scholastic achievement, extra-curricular activities, community involvement, personal statement, and letter of recommendation.

The National JACL Scholarship program is a different program than the Twin Cities JACL Scholarship program with unique requirements, deadlines, and a separate application.

The 2024 National JACL scholarship program is currently underway. Information about the National JACL Scholarship program can be found here.
