This scholarship is designed for those who are leaders in their school and/or community. As the Jaycees strongly believe that service to humanity is the best work of life, we also value community service based leadership. Please note that while uploading a transcript is a portion of the application, this is not a GPA based scholarship and applicants of all GPA’s are highly encouraged to apply!
In 2023 the Palatine Jaycees will be awarding five $3,000 scholarships.
Ken Blik was a key leader and founding member of the Palatine Jaycees and was chapter President in 1958. Ken passed away in 2019 however his love for giving back to the community is memorialized in this scholarship program.
