Announcing the Jane Knows Scholarship Fund

I am SO excited to announce that effective with the incoming class of fall 2015, Jane Knows will be providing four $5,000 scholarships annually for incoming freshmen at the Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado!

Although academic achievement and extracurricular activities will be taken into consideration, all candidates will be the first in their immediate family to go to a four-year college.  As the salutatorian of my high school class, daughter of a single mom with four young children and the first in my family to go to college, I would not have been able to achieve my dreams if it weren’t for the generous financial aid package provided by my alma mater, Knox College.

This has been a long-time dream of mine to support kids, like myself, who might not have the option of a great education.  I have selected Leeds as the recipient of these scholarships as I am deeply involved as a mentor, lecturer and board member of the school.

Going forward, all fees for my speaking engagements will also go towards this scholarship fund!  If you know a company that wants an engaging speaker (me!) and believes in supporting higher education for amazing, less privileged students, please send them here to!
