The JonCade Thomas Clemons Memorial Scholarship Fund offers scholarships to students in Louisiana with financial needs who display academic excellence, strong citizenship and character, and a desire to make a meaningful contribution to society.

This year, The JonCade Thomas Clemons Memorial Scholarship Fund will award Four (4) scholarships valued at $20,000 and Six (6) scholarships valued at $8,000, to be paid out over eight semesters, to qualified graduating high school students who will be attending college, community college, or technical college in the State of Louisiana.  The 10 students chosen each year will receive 2 semester payments per year, for 4 years.  This is a total commitment of $128,000.

Eligibility requirements and application procedures are the same for all awards.  Recipients are chosen by the board’s selection committee, which consists of current and retired educators from the Acadiana area. Students are chosen based on academic achievement, financial need, and involvement in extracurricular activities and community programs which demonstrate leadership and strong citizenship characteristics.  We consider all applicants without regard to race, religion, gender, age, color, or national origin.
