The Legacy Scholarship Program

The Legacy Scholarship program is a unique opportunity to fund the cost of one delegate in perpetuity! A gift of $5,000 or more from an individual, estate or corporation ensures that a delegate seat is reserved in your name at American Legion Jersey Boys State, forever.
