Twenty JAG graduates were selected to receive a $1,000 scholarship and one JAG alum was selected to receive a $2,000 scholarship. These twenty-one outstanding JAG graduates have achieved the high honor of 2017 Smith Scholar. This achievement should be listed in the Smith Scholar’s resume or when applications request a listing of awards, scholarships, or recognitions. Only 20 JAG graduates in the Class of 2017 will be able to use the Smith Scholar designation.

The Kenneth M. Smith Scholarship Fund and the Smith Scholars Program were established by the JAG Board of Directors to recognize the extraordinary leadership and service of the President and Chief Executive Officer of Jobs for America’s Graduates, Inc., Kenneth M. Smith.  The number of scholarships to be awarded is dependent on the donations to the Kenneth M. Smith Scholarship Fund.  Funding for the KMS Scholarship Fund has come from JAG Board members as well as Western Union Foundation, Lillian Goldman Trust, Strategic Partnerships and CERI.  From 2009-2017, the Fund has awarded 113 scholarships for a total of $167,000.
