San Antonio Junior Forum offers donors a variety of opportunities for giving:

SAJF Scholarship Fund

The first annual San Antonio Junior Forum Scholarships were given in 1972. Each year, graduating seniors from Bexar County High Schools, are given the opportunity to apply for SAJF scholarships through the Minnie Stevens Piper Foundation’s Bexar County Scholarship Clearing House. San Antonio Junior Forum has awarded more than $200,000.00 to students who we feel are outstanding examples of intelligent, motivated and caring individuals.

San Antonio Junior Forum offers a minimum of three scholarships annually. Other scholarships may be offered to graduating seniors if funds are available.
