We will update this page with additional FAQs as we receive them.
What is the June Jordan Joy Fund? The June Jordan Joy Fund is a $500 stipend awarded to Black women who are studying abroad. The purpose of the fund is to provide additional money for Black women to be able to experience joy during their time abroad.
I'm planning to study abroad after Spring 2020, can I apply now? Unfortunately, we are only collecting funds for the Spring 2020 term at this time. Should we have additional funds, we will open another application for Fall 2020. Please share our website to your network so we can get more funds to sponsor future applicants :)
Update: we recently learned of another organization who sponsors women of color for Summer 2020 study abroad. Visit www.DIWCFund.org to learn more and apply.
My institution operates on the quarter calendar, can I still apply? Yes, you may apply if you will be studying abroad beginning in Winter Quarter (starting in January and ending in March) or Spring Quarter (starting in March and ending in June).
Who should I contact with additional questions? You may contact Nina Daoud at june.jordan.joy (at) gmail (dot) com
