The relationship between student and sponsor is a personal and organic process of development and growth for both. Through the Scholarship Sponsor Program, the student gains a sense of confidence and a drive to succeed; the sponsor gains a uniquely gratifying and rewarding experience. Throughout the process both lives are positively impacted.
2012-2016: ~$75,000 - 4 years
Supporting a specific student’s high school experience will be a rewarding and life-changing experience for both you and the student. Imagine watching as your student develops from a young, bright 13 year old to a college-bound graduate. From the student’s perspective this level of personal commitment gives them an extra boost of confidence and a stronger will to reach higher and go further. Without doubt, standing behind your student during this very important time in their life will be as gratifying as it is crucial to the student. This program entails a four year commitment to provide financial grants to students in need. Tuition is $17,750 and increases at approximately 6% annually.
Starting with an introduction letter and ending with an end of the year update letter, you will see first-hand how, in just one year, your support has changed a life. Without the support from a sponsor this student would not be able to attend Jackson Hole Community School and receive the highest quality education. Throughout the year you will get to know your student through letters that student writes personally to you. You will be invited to attend all of your student’s events and important presentations. This is an extremely rewarding, personal and crucial way to nurture intellectual curiosity and relationships that last a lifetime.
