One of the benefits that SPJST makes available to its members is a competitive scholarship program. The SPJST Scholarship/GrantProgram is meant to encourage and assist members to further their education and to help them achieve career goals.
Donations to the SPJST Scholarship Fund are always welcome and appreciated.
SPJST General Scholarships were established in 1982 for all SPJST members. General Scholarships are funded by the Supreme Lodge and voluntary contributions by SPJST members. Accordingly, the more funds available, the more scholarships awarded.
SPJST Leadership Grants – For Active Youth Club Members
Leadership Grants were established in 1996 for active youth club members and are funded solely through allocations by the Supreme Lodge.
