Jean K. Weil Foundation
Past Scholarship Recipients
"The Wall of Excellence"

SNIYF

Below is the complete list of past year winners of the Jean Weil Foundation Scholarship Award. These cadets embodied everything positive about Junior ROTC. These people, as well as all of the scholarship applicants over the years deserve our praise and our respect. Without consideration, a quick scan through the years of winners shows the diversity of backgrounds that remains a true testament of what makes JROTC so strong - hard work and sacrifice yield excellence in all walks of life. Major congratulations to all those who make the effort to apply for consideration each year.

WE ARE PROUD TO HAVE PROVIDED TO DATE OVER $39,000
IN POST-HIGH SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS TO THE MOST DESERVING
NATIONALS SENIOR CADETS THROUGH THE JEAN K. WEIL SCHOLARSHIP.

100% of donated funds go to the scholarships with ZERO administration, legal or other fees - these are paid by Sports Network Int'l

It was a pleasure to get the opportunity to read each of these individuals high school transcripts, read their essay and see their recommendation letters. Having the finalists interview on-site at the Nationals is a treat for any JKW Board Member fortunate enough to gain that duty. I have no doubt that each of these fine individuals will be successful at whatever they choose to attempt in life. The Nationals remains honored to provide thee funds each year to worthy cadets and remains a great way to give back to the cadets that have given so much to the history and success of the Nationals.
