JMC Emergency Scholarship Fund

Since 2013, the Madison Community has generously supported our Emergency Scholarship fund. During the last two years the need has doubled, which is the hard news. Fortunately, you have met this challenge with over 200 donations annually, raising an average of $44K each year to meet our students’ emergency needs. Can you make a difference again this year?

Assistant Dean Jeff Judge works with JMC students who may walk into his office or are referred to him by advisors and faculty members. For alumni before 1998, think Dixie Platt. Jeff says the issues are fairly consistent each year:

  • sudden loss of income;
  • unexpected and high health care expenses;
  • not enough financial aid even with student loans;
  • extended family issues.

Jeff needs your help to provide the necessary resources for alleviating individual financial emergencies and the stress that accompanies them which threatens to derail educational goals.

Donate to JMC today! Help all our students stay in school!

The JMC Emergency Scholarship Fund keeps Madison students in school, advancing towards a degree and out of financial jeopardy or disenrollment. Textbooks may be provided; tuition paid; necessities, such as food or shelter may be subsidized; medical care may be supplied; other unanticipated needs may be supported by this fund. Support JMC students, make a difference, and change our world. The world needs more James Madison College grads!
