For High School Seniors

The John Jay Fetzer Memorial Scholarship Fund benefits high school seniors who demonstrate exceptional academic achievement, leadership, civil debate skills and civics knowledge. Established in memory of our late Institute colleague, Jay was passionate about equal justice and equal opportunity for all. His compassion for others was borne out by the volunteer work he did at the food bank, homeless shelter and tutoring for underserved and at risk youth. The scholarship is bestowed to exemplary members of our high school program, the O’Connor Institute Ambassadors Civics & Debate Club who personify the core values of the Institute.

Seniors currently enrolled in the Ambassadors Civics & Debate Club are eligible to apply to be the 2024 John Jay Fetzer Memorial Scholarship Recipient. CLICK HERE for submission requirements.
