The JLK Foundation is focused on providing a helping hand to single parents of minority children by awarding a scholarship to help cover housing expenses. Our goal with this scholarship is to help these families by giving them an opportunity to get ahead in their finances, which is an essential part of creating financial gain in our community.
The JLK Foundation scholarship is available on a monthly basis to one family in Colorado. Each family awarded will receive a grant of up to $2000 to be used to pay for their housing (e.g. mortgage payment, rent dues, etc.) for the following month.

There is a limit to one reward per family per calendar year.

We strongly believe that this scholarship will change the lives of many. Being a single parent has its own set of unique challenges and adding financial strain on top of that is on more hurdle to overcome. In the United States, 33% of household income is spent on housing. Nationwide, 63% of households have less than $500 saved for an emergency. For one month, not having to pay a housing expense and being able to save those funds will create a lasting change in our community.
