HBCU College GAP Fund

by Jack and Jill of America Foundation

Every year, a number of HBCU students with only 1 or 2 semesters left, don't graduate because of small unpaid bills.  Jack and Jill College GAP (Graduation Assistance Program) fund was established to ensure students graduate, and not to apply for a loan, scholarship or write another essay, just go to class. The criteria is simple, a student in good standing will just need to show up to class and the remaing tuition bill is PAID IN FULL! The purpose of the fund is providing students attending HBCUs an emergency gift to increase the number of college graduates and to reduce their financial debt.  

JJ College GAP Fund started with an investment of $100,000 to graduate students from our 4 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 $2M over a 10 year period for HBCU students.
