Award Amount: 


Business leaders of Hispanic heritage are a powerful, driving force in today’s business world. At JAMAS Capital Management, we want to foster the rich diversity found in our industry by easing the financial burden of secondary education. Our hope is that we can continue to encourage young students of Hispanic descent to find success in firms such as JAMAS and Gemstone and build a brighter tomorrow for our industry. That’s why we are proud to present the JAMAS Future Hispanic Leaders Scholarship, worth $2,500.

JAMAS Management founder Ben Turnage says he is personally proud of this scholarship opportunity his company has created.

“All too often, I have witnessed some of the brightest young minds be forced to turn away from their dreams because it was too expensive,” Ben says. “We at JAMAS know some of the most brilliant future business leaders are young Hispanic men and women who are in a situation in which they can’t afford to get the education they need. With this scholarship, we hope to remove this barrier so America’s future business leaders may find it easier to succeed.”
