About the scholarship

Each year at graduation we award a $2,500 scholarship to a JM senior who embodies Ceili’s spirit of service.  We do this to encourage and support service-minded students to pursue further education.  So far we have given $10,000 in scholarships to four amazing students.

Scholarship Criteria

Any JM senior in good standing can apply for the scholarship, and our scholarship committee reviews applications and interviews finalists before selecting the winning applicant.
