About Us

The James B. Morris Scholarship Fund strives to encourage, identify, and provide financial assistance to deserving youth who wish to pursue a college education and ultimately a career in their home communities. The number of scholarship applications we receive continues to overwhelm our financial ability to meet the demand. Unlike larger programs with unlimited funds, or programs which have funds remaining after the close of their program year, our ratio of qualified applicants to available funds runs 5:1. Therefore, having to decline a qualified student's request for financial assistance becomes an unpleasant, but an inevitable task for our scholarship committee.

We believe the James B. Morris Scholarship Fund has become a significant player in the movement to pursue diversity in education and the workplace. This is possible through our being able to match businesses and outstanding college students who have the possibility of being future leaders in their chosen professions. We need your support to continue this work.

Named Scholarship

Many contributors find having a direct connection to a specific student important. When you support the MSF as a J. B. Morris Fellow or Founder, your donation may be designated to the education of a specific student (or students). This gives you a chance to meet and get to know the outstanding young Morris scholar you're helping and watch his/her progress in school.
