Jackson Club Scholarship Fund

The Jackson Club Scholarship Fund provides financial awards for postsecondary education, including college and vocational training, to graduating seniors from Hermantown High School. Applicants must be residents of the Hermantown Community School District and graduates of Hermantown High who plan to attend an accredited institution full-time. Additionally, they must have a GPA of 2.75 or higher. Applications must include an academic transcript (with standardized test scores), financial need documentation, one recommendation and an essay titled, “What Growing up in Hermantown Means to Me.” Hermantown’s Jackson Club, the oldest club in St. Louis County, was established in 1910 in a one-room school building. The club moved to several different locations before deciding, in 1988, to sell its last club building and meet instead at City Hall. They used proceeds from the sale to create the scholarship fund for local students.
