Junior Achievement of Central Ohio (JA) is excited to launch our inaugural scholarship program! We will award a $2,500 scholarship to two graduating high school seniors in the 2020/2021 school year who have plans to attend an institute of higher learning or technical training. These scholarships are funded in part by and are given in honor of the Laureates of Junior Achievement’s Central Ohio Business Hall of Fame.
