Annual Scholarship Program

Program Overview

“I ask that all of you celebrate my life and everything I stand for. I ask that you do everything in your power to share my mission, what I put my entire life on the line for. To reveal to all in this world what they are capable of, by showing them the confidence and abilities they already possess.”

– Jessi Combs (1980-2019)



Blaze the trail toward your dream career with support from The Jessi Combs Foundation (JCF).

This program is designed to remove a portion of the financial burden associated with higher education, one of many barriers that could prohibit women from pursuing a career in the trades. 

What makes our scholarship program stand out is the community we are building along the way. JCF can leverage an extensive network of industry contacts, sponsors and ‘Friends of the Foundation’ to assist with introductions designed to kick-start career opportunities in the trades industry.

Being awarded a scholarship in Jessi’s name is not the end of the process, it’s the beginning of a lifelong connection to The JCF Family.  Our family is a growing community comprised of past scholarship recipients (aka "Jessi's Girls") the JCF founders and leadership team and other likeminded women inspired by Jessi and everything she stood for.  We strive to create an environment where our family of scholarship recipients feel like they part of something special, because they are.  In the JCF community, these women have a network of support and encouragement they can rely on while they change the world.
