Many College of Business Diversity Council members serve as Student Administrator Instructional Faculty Partnership mentors to Centennial Scholars. Serving as a mentor to a centennial scholar is a very rewarding experience; it also helps to enhance the academic experience for the student.
The Centennial Scholars Program (CSP) was established in March 2004. The program is rooted in JMU's commitment to serving the citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia in a fair and equitable manner.
JMU also acknowledges the importance to our nation that minorities and other under-represented segments of the population pursue higher education.
The program provides a financial aid package that covers the full billable cost to attend JMU in the form of grants. These funds cover tuition, fees, room and board for a maximum of four years for freshman, and two years for transfer students and graduate students.
