Wrapping Up A Year of Thanks

We’re getting ready to open our fifth cycle in January to nominations. Before we do, we want to take a moment to share our achievements in 2018 and our priorities for 2019.

Building Students’ Confidence

Students at the end of their first year with JMB Award answer a survey to help us understand our impact.


2018 accomplishments: Survey responses show being part of the JMB Award community increased 100% of our students’ confidence in their ability to advocate for themselves at college, find the resources they need, and make informed decisions. The same survey revealed two-thirds felt the experience left them with a better understanding of their finances.

2019 priorities: Identifying partnerships and programs for building out our financial empowerment curriculum.
