With the knowledge that business leaders of Hispanic heritage are a powerful driving force in today’s business world, and with the desire to further foster the rich diversity found in the private investment industry, Ben O. Turnage, Founder and CEO of JAMAS, is pleased to announce this scholarship opportunity. “All too often, I have witnessed some of the brightest young minds be forced to turn away from their dreams because secondary education is so expensive,” Turnage said. “We at JAMAS know some of the most brilliant future business leaders are young Hispanic men and women who are in a situation in which they can’t afford to get the education they need. With this scholarship, we hope to reduce this financial barrier so Hispanic youth find it more realistic to succeed.”

The JAMAS Future Hispanic Leaders Scholarship is open to all U.S. citizens of Hispanic descent who are currently enrolled or have been accepted into an accredited college or university. All applicants must have at least a 2.8 grade point average and must submit a 500 to 1,000-word essay in order to be considered.

The deadline for applying for the JAMAS Future Hispanic Leaders Scholarship is February 1, 2018.
