Some of Mississippi’s future engineers and techies are getting a financial boost.
Today, Jackson State University announced the creation of ten separate $2,000 scholarships, totaling $20,000 dollars.
The scholarships are a gift from the Ford Motor Company Fund, the charitable arm of the Detroit-based automotive giant, and Tom Joyner Fantastic Voyage, an initiative of the popular morning radio-show host.
Those scholarships will provide financial assistance for qualified sophomore and junior students majoring in business and STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics).
