The Kohl’s Department Stores’ Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program honors nearly 200 deserving volunteers with $1,000 scholarships toward higher education. Jayci Derby, 12, of San Antonio was chosen from more than 35,000 nominees nationwide for making a positive impact in her community. While decorating her grandfather’s grave, Jayci noticed that few other war hero graves were being honored, so she set out to address the issue by starting Jayci’s Wreaths for Heroes. She collected more than $18,000 for wreaths and led a group to place them on gravesites at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery for National Wreath Day.

Through the Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program, Kohl’s is encouraging promising youth to further their education at a time when college costs continue to rise and parents are relying heavily on federal and private student loans to fund higher education.

Winners are chosen based on initiative, leadership, generosity and project benefits, and outcome. Each regional-level winner qualifies for one of Kohl’s 10 national scholarships, which will be announced at the end of July. National winners will each receive a total of $10,000 in scholarships and Kohl’s will donate $1,000 to a nonprofit organization on each national winner’s behalf.
