About The Foundation
The John Stallworth Foundation (JSF) was created in 1980 by John and Flo Stallworth, to provide merit-based scholarships to deserving students attending their alma mater, Alabama A&M University. The mission expanded in 2013 with the addition of scholarships for students attending other universities in the state of Alabama .
The JSF assists academically gifted, deserving students from diverse economic circumstances. Many of these students do not have the financial means to attend college and are often denied the opportunity to develop their full potential. To help alleviate these crippling financial obstacles, the JSF awards up to ten scholarships annually to students attending Alabama A&M University, and up to ten annual scholarships to recipients attending other universities in the state of Alabama.
Since its inception, the Foundation has awarded over $500,000 in scholarship awards, thereby allowing numerous students to realize their dream of obtaining a college education.
Recipients who meet the application criteria are selected from an applicant pool of national scholars by the Foundation’s Scholarship Committee. The John Stallworth Foundation is independently operated by its Board of Directors as a non-profit (501-c-3) organization. All donations are tax deductible, as allowed by IRS guidelines.
Freeda McDowell serves as the Foundation’s Executive Director.
