Scholarships & Grants


Nacogdoches Junior Forum accepts applications from local non-profit organizations annually. NJF strives to invest its money in areas that currently or will in the near future provide an opportunity for members to volunteer their time in service to the community. Donations of money without provision for Forum volunteer and administrative participation are not our primary interest. Volunteer service can be requested without financial assistance. All applications for grant money will be considered based on how they directly relate to the mission of NJF:

To promote volunteerism; to develop the potential of our members and for voluntary participation in community affairs; and to demonstrate the effectiveness of trained volunteers. 

We are now accepting applications for our 2023-2024 service year. You may download your grant application by clicking here.
