Jackie Jenkins-Scott Endowed Fund
For Service and Learning Journeys at Wheelock College
Upon her inauguration as the 13th President of Wheelock College, Jackie Jenkins-Scott chose the theme Global Reach, Local Touch. During her 12 years of leadership, former President Jackie internationalized the Wheelock College experience.
Under her leadership, Wheelock's travel, serve, and learn experiences were proven to be life changing, transformative opportunities that contribute to students' academic success and expand upon faculty expertise. Each year, Wheelock offers special service learning trips to communities in New Orleans and Puerto Rico, as well as to countries around the globe such as South Africa, Ireland, Belize, Germany, Guatemala, Sweden, Benin, and Turkey. Students who have participated cite these trips as some of the most profound learning experiences of their Wheelock education.
To honor former President Jackie's commitment to travel and service, the Board of Trustees created The Jackie Jenkins-Scott Endowed Fund. This fund allows current students to engage in service learning trips, conferences, and other travel outside the Wheelock Community. Students can apply for financial awards to offset the cost of these transformative experiences. Recipients are asked to document their travels through photos and stories that can be shared with other students, faculty, and supporters.
