Marching Forward update … 24 new JU scholarships and counting!

“March Forward: 31 New Scholarships, 31 Days” — a month-long endeavor under the ASPIRE Campaign umbrella to provide tuition funding for 31 Jacksonville University students — is generating interest and financial support from alumni and other JU devotees, many of whom had not previously funded JU scholarships.

As of Friday, March 24, “March Forward” had produced 24 new four-year scholarships for incoming (Fall 2013) Jacksonville University freshmen.

First-time alumni donors who participate in “March Forward” receive a special incentive: when they pledge $1,000 a year or more for four years, they can name their scholarship and receive a 1:1 match from JU, for a total $2,000 scholarship award to an incoming freshman for four years. All others who pledge $2,500 or more per year for four years are also matched 1:1, for a $5,000 or more named annual scholarship for an incoming freshman.

More information about “March Forward” can be received by calling Michael Howland or Robyn Reeves at (904) 256-7393, by emailing rreeves3@ju.edu, or by visiting ju.edu/aspire. Along with commitments, referrals of potential donors also are welcome.
