Jackson State University unveils Elevate Strategic Plan

To qualify for the scholarship, candidates must be full-time undergraduate female students at Jackson State while pursuing degrees in mathematics, finance, accounting or economics, maintaining at least a 2.5 GPA, and demonstrating financial need. The scholarship will help recipients pay for tuition, books, supplies and other fees.

Story Highlights

  • Hancock’s principal $25,000 investment will be eligible for a dollar-for-dollar match, based on funds availability, through the university’s Title III matching funds program, with the potential to double the endowment to $50,000.

  • “Jackson State University greatly appreciates receiving the Hancock Whitney Bank Endowed Scholarship. As the endowment grows over time, it will create a legacy of learning, extend the impact of the bank’s generosity well beyond a lifetime, and provide scholarships for students for years to come,” said Gwen Caples, interim vice president for JSU’s Institutional Advancement and External Affairs.
