About Jean Simmons
Jean Simmons, a highly successful real estate professional, established The Jean Simmons After-Divorce Scholarship Fund in 2002 (now the Jean Simmons Single Parent Scholarship) to help people get on their feet after divorce.
Jean Simmons actively served her community throughout her lifetime. During her years in Georgia, she served as a CASA volunteer, worked with Safepath Children’s Advocacy Center, and created a backpack program for underprivileged children through MUST Ministries. Jean developed and taught Life After Divorce classes for many years. Jean passed away on November 10, 2015 and since then, her four children continue her legacy by continuing to award scholarships to eligible single parents.
The Scholarship is renewable for four (4) years to an educational organization which normally maintains a regular faculty and curriculum and normally has a regularly enrolled body of pupils or students in attendance at the place where its educational activities are regularly carried on.
Funds will be paid directly to the educational organization. Funds not used must rollover to the following semester and MAY NOT be paid to the student.
The minimum scholarship amount is $1,000 per year.
