Mission: Florence S. and Ted C. Jacobsen have spent a lifetime serving in their church, community and family. The resources that they built through their hard work are now benefiting students who will honor their legacy of service through their own diligent service and commitment to scholarship.
The Jacobsen Scholarship Fund is a donor advised scholarship that focuses on undergraduate education (NB: master’s and doctoral students are also eligible) and provides need-based scholarships to students who are active and worthy members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as well as citizens of the United States of America. This fund focuses on serving those students who will most effectively use this scholarship award to pursue their educational goals. Preference may be given to upperclassmen who have demonstrated commitment to their educational progress. Other criteria include students who:
- Are enrolled, or accepted for enrollment, full-time in an accredited post-secondary institution within the United States and its territories
- Provide evidence of financial need
- Show evidence of ability to succeed in the post-secondary environment. In most cases this is demonstrated by maintaining a GPA of at least 2.75; however, this standard is not absolute for selection
While it is not a requirement in any way for the awarding or continuation of this scholarship, applicants are encouraged to voluntarily make donations to replenish the Jacobsen Scholarship Fund when, and if, their financial circumstances permit. Any funds received for this purpose will be added to the principal of the fund and used for continued awards to qualified applicants.
