The Junior League of Cedar Rapids (JLCR) Scholarship Fund is designed to help those currently within, or having recently aged out of, the foster care system afford items they need assistance financing. Items can range from sporting gear for team sports, replacement of books lost during the transition between foster homes, money for gas, or basic household items. Religiously affiliated activities will also be considered.
Each individual is eligible to request the JLCR Scholarship twice in one year. Funding decisions will be made within two weeks of receipt of the applications. JLCR will award up to $200.00 per individual. Larger requests due to financial hardship will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Cash will not be distributed to scholarship recipients. Scholarships will be awarded in the form of gift cards or monies will be paid directly to debtors.
Please submit proof of expenses for any requests exceeding $25.00.
Please reach out to your Foundation 2 Crisis Services caseworker to request a scholarship.
