Our Application Review Committee has just completed the review and ranking of all JWF scholarship applications. As a member of the scholarship committee, the 2017 group was another amazing and diverse core collection of future leaders. All held high positions in the program, all had solid pedigrees and mostly, all were special in their own way and are to be commended for their efforts involving the application. Strong community service commitments, very high ACT/SAT/GPA ranks, and GLOWING LETTERS of recommendation made this another tough group to select just FIVE finalists to interview face-to-face, on-site during the upcoming Nationals. The selection of this scholarship continues to be a most difficult task that I am honored every year to be a part of with the other board members..

As a former school teacher, I remain in awe of many strong essays, the recommendation letters by school administrators and JROTC instructors, as well as the school transcripts! I should not have been so surprised as the cadets who make themselves valued members of JROTC programs are among the finest young men and women I have ever met. I appreciate the efforts so many made in seeking this scholarship and know through reading the school transcripts, recommendation letters and the essays, that ALL will be very successful in any endeavors they chose.

Jean Weil was the driving force behind the great success of the National High School Drill Team Championships. She was forced to drop out of high school to help support her family and always wished to finish high school and attend college. She worked hard all her life, was extremely quick minded and always cared deeply about the cadets who attended the event. She spent a great deal of her working years helping to make "The Nationals" the special event that it has become. I know she would be very proud to know the high caliber of people that apply for this scholarship every year.

Our Application Review Committee completes the review and ranking of all JWF scholarship applications generally by April 15th with results posted soon afterwards. As a member of the scholarship committee, those cadets who apply are an amazing and diverse core group of future leaders. All generally hold high positions in the program, all hold solid pedigrees academically and scholastically. Mostly, all were special in their own way and are to be commended for their efforts involving the application. Strong community service commitments, very high ACT/SAT/GPA ranks, and GLOWING LETTERS of recommendation annually made this a tough group to select just FIVE finalists who will then interview face-to-face, on-site during the upcoming Nationals. The selection of this scholarship continues to be a most difficult task that I am honored every year to be a part of with the other board members..
