JSF is dedicated to creating paths to brighter futures

Through the Indigenous Peoples Program, JSF provides scholarships to Indigenous students who study business or entrepreneurship. The Katz School of Business at FLC has received a grant from JSF to offer scholarships to business majors who qualify for the Native American Tuition Waiver.
