Get ahead on your college and career goals this summer with Jamestown Community College! The Educational Advancement for Regional Neighbors (EARN) grant covers the cost of tuition for one summer course at JCC. This grant is available to the first 150 high school students who apply and enroll in a course during one of our two summer sessions.

Our summer 2024 EARN program is full. The summer 2024 EARN application is closed.

  • Open to current high school students ages 15 and older by the start of the term.
  • Must either live or attend high school in Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, or Allegany county.
  • Must have been a New York state resident for at least 12 months prior to the course start date.
  • Grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to those who complete the application and all the required documentation by the application deadline.
