Each of the thirty-nine graduate scholars, all of whom previously received JCKF undergraduate scholarships, will receive up to $50,000 to pursue a graduate degree at an accredited institution in the United States or abroad. Starting this fall, a total of fourteen scholars will begin their studies in medicine, engineering, law, or social work and services. The rest will embark on programs of study in business, dentistry, divinity, psychology, library science, communications, international development, humanities, social sciences, education, and visual and performing arts.
"These scholars are some of the most talented and driven students in the country who we know will go on to make invaluable contributions to our nation," said JCKF executive director Harold O. Levy. "Our very generous graduate scholarship ensures that lack of financial means will not become a barrier to reaching their obviously great potential."
