Jake Nawn Foundation

The Jake Nawn Foundation has established a need based scholarship for students entering a field of study based in the Language Arts.

Creative writing is strongly stressed and encouraged whether it includes poetry, essays, dramas, historical happenings or current events.

Broadening the understanding of language affords unlimited independent thought, with no boundaries or limits.
