The Pima JTED Foundation

The Pima JTED Foundation’s primary mission is to help students who demonstrate a financial need cover program expenses so that they may successfully enter the workforce and/or continue their post-secondary education. Funds may be used for, but are not limited to; supplies, books, equipment, uniform clothing and shoes, or other specialty items that are essential to completing a JTED program. Funds may also be used for certification testing and licenses if other JTED funds are not available.

In addition, the Pima JTED Foundation supports students and teachers at Pima JTED’s Central Campus and Satellite locations with a variety of scholarships, tuition reimbursement programs, and mini-grants.

The Pima JTED Foundation is a non-profit organization that operates independently of the Pima JTED District.
