TWU Announces JAMP Students

5/14/04


DENTON — A Denton and a Fort Worth resident make up the second set of Joint Admission Medical Program (JAMP) students at Texas Woman’s University. Thelma Lindsey is a 2003 graduate of Denton High School and Ana Martinez is a 2003 graduate of Northside High School in Fort Worth. Both are biology majors at TWU.

JAMP was created by Senate Bill 940 during the 77th Texas Legislature. The program supports highly qualified, economically disadvantaged students interested in pursing a medical career. The program provides undergraduate and medical school scholarships, as well as stipends so the students can participate in summer internships during their freshman, sophomore and junior years.

JAMP participants automatically receive admission to one of the state’s eight medical schools if they successfully complete all program requirements.

To be eligible for the program, high school students must enroll in a JAMP participating college or university the fall semester following high school graduation. Students also must be Pell Grant eligible, meet SAT or ACT score requirements, complete 15 credit hours during their first semester of college and maintain a 3.25 grade-point-average.

For information on the JAMP program at TWU, contact Dr. James Johnson at (940) 898-2567 or at jjohnson@twu.edu. Information about JAMP also is available at www.utsystem.edu/jamp.
