The Richard O. Jacobson Legacy Scholarship Program

Richard O. Jacobson Foundation has established a scholarship program to assist students who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an approved accredited institution.* Applicants must be residents of Iowa and demonstrate financial need.

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an outside appraisal. Once scholarship recipients are selected, financial data is reviewed to determine the amount of each up to $10,000. Financial need, as calculated by Scholarship America, must be demonstrated for the student to receive an award. Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first.
