TJF Scholarship Fund

In 2019, long-time donors, Dave and Jeanne Allbaugh established “The Job Foundation Scholarship Fund.” Graduating Job students will have the opportunity to apply for this scholarship if they plan to attend Hawkeye Community College, the University of Northern Iowa or Iowa State University.


The Allbaughs understand that access to higher education is one of many ways to advance economically and break the cycle of generational poverty. In addition to financially supporting students and the foundation, Dave and Jeanne are dedicated volunteers.


A special thank you to Dave & Jeanne Allbaugh who have a passion and a vision to continue to support Job students after they graduate from our program.

Scholarship Thank Yous


Tyrese Phillip


“My name is Tyrese Phillip, and I would like to thank you greatly for helping fund my education at my dream school of Iowa State University. I have been a part of the Job Foundation since elementary school and having the support from donors like you is one of the main reasons I continue to strive for success. My educational goal at this moment is to obtain a bachelor’s degree in political science or somewhere in the liberal arts field. While also maintaining at least a 3.0 GPA, if not higher, throughout my four years of college. I’m drawn to this major because by studying a topic such as political science, I will learn how to improve my skills in communication, writing, critical thinking as well as understanding different ways of thinking... So again, I would like to thank you for allowing me to have 100% focus on my goals and dreams in life.”


— Sincerely, Tyrese Phillip 


Dominiqua Watts



“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your generosity in funding The Job Foundation scholarship. I am honored to be the recipient of this amazing scholarship. I am currently a sophomore majoring in Elementary Education, and my GPA is a 3.2. I have completed 37 credits and will soon be preparing to take my entry exam for my program. Receiving this scholarship allows me to maintain my GPA while not worrying about the financial burden of paying for school. I look forward to furthering my education and giving back to my community once I begin my teaching career. Thank you for believing in me and your continued investment in my future.”


— Sincerely, Dominiqua Watts
