Each year the CHJA Scholarship Committee awards
two scholarships, a Champion and a Reserve Champion. Since the inception of the fund in 1989, we have awarded
over $95,000 to CHJA Junior and Amateur Adult members for their secondary
education based on academic performance, character references, and teacher recommendations.
Congratulations to the 2015 CHJA Scholarship Recipients!
