Established in 1978, Jackson Properties is a property management company located in Tallahassee, Florida. Since the beginning our goal has been to provide affordable, convenient and reliable housing to college students (of course we welcome non-students as well!). We take pride in the work we do, the knowledgeable, reliable and friendly team that knows names and faces of our residents, and works hard to keep residents happy and comfortable.
According to the Student Debt Relief, in 2017, the average borrower of the graduating class had about $28,500 in debt, and that is not including any loans that parents took out for their children’s education. Additionally, US News states that the average bachelor’s degree holder takes 21 years to pay off his or her loans. In the end, this can mean paying close to double the original amount when interest is taken into account.
We want to help you! We are providing this scholarship to help students excel in college, without having to shoulder a bigger burden later on.
