Jules Joseph Charitable and Educational Scholarship Program & Application


The Jules Joseph Charitable and Educational Scholarship Program serves as a reflection of our ancestors' desire for the pursuit of higher education.  Under the Program, scholarships will be awarded to qualified high school seniors who have been accepted into an educational institution for higher learning within an Undergraduate and/or Graduate (1st post-baccalaureate degree) program.


Donations are always welcome!  You can donate at Jules Joseph Family Reunion 2024



  • High school seniors accepted into a 2- or 4-year college or technical program
  • Graduates accepted into a post-baccalaureate training program pursuing their 1st post-baccalaureate degree

Program Guidelines & Priorities:


*Seeking graduating seniors with a record of volunteerism in the community in non-school sponsored activities and participation in extracurricular school activities.


*Applicants must have documentation of high school AND documented plan/acceptance to attend a 2- or 4-year college/university or technical school.


*Scholarship funds will be paid at the yearly Jules Joseph Family Reunion banquet pending receipt of all necessary documents to include a) an official transcript with academic seal from graduating high school or copy of undergraduate obtained, b) copy of the letter of acceptance from the 2- or 4-year college/university, technical school, or graduate program, and c) submission of personal statement/essay (if pursuing initial degree only).  It will be the student's responsibility to submit all documents to the Foundation (by email or regular mail) by the June 15, 2024 deadline.  If document(s) cannot be obtained or submitted prior to, or at the yearly reunion, arrangements must be made to have documents sent to the address listed below prior to the start of the Fall semester to receive funds, or funds may be held until the next scheduled family reunion.


*Application deadline is June 15, 2024.  Late application consideration will be delayed.  


*The applications will be reviewed and recipients selected by the scholarship committee.  The scholarships will be awarded in July if all documents are reviewed by the family reunion (3rd weekend in July annually).


*Please submit any questions to: Julesjosephscholarshipinfo@gmail.com.



The deadline for complete application to be received by the Jules Joseph Charitable & Educational Scholarship Fund is:  June 15th annually
