The Kenneth M. Smith Scholarship was established in 2009 by the Board of Jobs for America’s Graduates to recognize the President and CEO of JAG and his decades-long leadership and service. Every year, high school seniors across the nation apply for this prestigious scholarship. Arizona scholarship recipients this year will be receiving $2,000 each to help pay for postsecondary expenses. 

We are proud to announce that nine of our wonderful JAG Arizona student leaders were awarded this scholarship for their postsecondary 2022-2023 degree, apprenticeship, and certification plans.
