The Jacquelynn Young Inspiration
Scholarship is awarded to graduating seniors of select local New York City high schools. It has been in existence since 2004, honoring the memory of my daughter
Jacquelynn, better known as Jackie to her family and friends. It serves as my
daughter’s legacy and furthers her community spirit and faith in people.
Since 2004, over a dozen one time grants were awarded to high school
seniors from various NYC schools. Some essays that were awarded the grants are
in the Scholarship section on the website, www.jacquelynnyoung.com. Please read
them and be inspired.
All grants are depended on fund raising activities and products. I invite all
upcoming high school graduating seniors from local New York City high schools to
apply for next year’s awards. Minimum award is $500, maximum $2,000. Grants are
awarded to those who have great heart and community spirit and a desire to further
their inspiration through higher education. Rules are provided on the application.
