Every year, a number of HBCU students with only 1 or 2 semesters left, don't graduate because of small unpaid bills. The College GAP (Graduation Assistance Program) fund was established to ensure students graduate. Not to apply for a loan, scholarship or write another essay, just go to class. The criteria is they are so close to graduating in good standing, the student will just need to show up in class and the remaing tuition bill is PAID IN FULL! The purpose of the fund is providing students attending HBCUs and emergency gift to increase the number of college graduates and reducing their financial debt.
Jack and Jill Foundation's pilot project started with an investment of $100,000 graduate students from our 3 inaugual schools - Prairie View A&M, Houston-Tillotson, Savannah State and Alcorn State. Each year the plan is to add additional HBCUs with a goal of $1M over a 10 year period for an HBCU scholarship endowment.
