JA Scholarship

JA of Central Virginia is looking for high school students who participated in at least one JA program while in high school who can speak about the lessons they learned.

You will be invited to share your story at a JA event the following school year. Not only will you be helping JA teach more students in future years, you will be introduced to JA’s vast network of local employers and receive a $2,500 scholarship upon graduation.

Are you the next JA Student Ambassador?


This competition is open to students currently enrolled in 9th-12th grade who have participated in at least one JA of Central Virginia program while enrolled in high school, including through external organizations. Up to one award will be given to a high school senior. Multiple awards may be given.

The award is to be used for direct education expenses, such as tuition, books, and room and board at any accredited post-secondary educational institution, including trade school and community college, for any field of study.

Tell us about your participation in a JA program and how that participation has changed your behavior or mindset.*

Applications are accepted through 11:59 pm on June 7th, 2024.
