"The Jessi Combs Foundation (JCF) is honored to announce the opening of the 2021 Jessi Combs Foundation Scholarship program. The JCF scholarship program issues scholarships to women pursuing a career in the trades. After a successful launch of the program in 2020, where seven women received scholarships totaling $30,000, the program enters its second year with a host of improvements to ease the application process.
“Our first year granting scholarships, an overwhelming amount of applications inspired us to seek out an easier process. While everyone managed, we knew there was room for improvements for both the board and the women applying” said Adel Adams, Board Chair for The Jessi Combs Foundation “As we prepare for this year’s applicants, we are pleased to announce that our application is now completely online, with an easy to follow step-by-step guide.”
Hannah Stout, a 2020 scholarship recipient pursuing a career in metal fabrication had this to say about the program “It is both an honor and a privilege to have been chosen by The JCF to help represent, and carry on, Jessi’s mission of getting more women involved in the trades. The foundation has already opened so many doors in my life and introduced me to so many incredible people…I will forever be grateful for the opportunity I’ve been given.”
The mission of The Jessi Combs Foundation is to Educate, Inspire, and Empower the next generation of trailblazing and stereotype-breaking women. A guiding principle to this mission is a simple question “What Would Jessi Do?”
