$500 Scholarships for Students & Teachers

"The real key to our national future," President Kennedy said, "lies in the young people of our country."

Our goal is to help one special student get to college, and one special teacher be recognized every single year. We do this to encourage teacher and student participation in the further study of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. If you know a student or teacher who is qualified, encourage them to submit themselves for the next round of JFK Lancer scholarships.

Since 1995, JFK Lancer has donated hundreds of dollars' worth of research materials to students, teachers, schools and libraries. We are committed to the our goal of educating people by making research materials available for everyone. That's why we have decided to put our commitment in action in a different and meaningful way. This means cash awards for a selected student and teacher to be awarded in November as our Teacher and Student of the Year.

Each scholarship is a non-renewable $500 cash award and $100 in materials from JFK Lancer Catalog. Students and teachers who are qualified are encouraged to complete these requirements and send it to Eligibility for competition in the JFK Lancer Scholarship program is by nomination. Students or Teachers should be nominated by their guidance counselors, (fellow) teachers, principals, headmasters or headmistresses. A student or teacher may also enter a nomination on his/her own behalf with an additional reference letter (3 total). An interview by a JFK Lancer representative will also be required.


We are looking for a young person who has demonstrated leadership qualities in the classroom as well as in student activities. This student should have not only an active interest in the JFK presidency and assassination, but a standard of excellence in their own research contributions to the study of the assassination of President Kennedy. We strive to reward special students like these. The scholarship is $500 cash, plus $100 in research materials.


Recognizing the need for ethical leadership as teachers, we wish to reward those dedicated to teaching young people the assassination events in the classroom. This teacher should have set a standard of excellence in research for which their students can strive, and have personally contributed information to the understanding of the murder of President Kennedy. The scholarship is $500 cash, plus $100 in research materials.
