Our Mission

Zion’s Project Inc. Memorial Scholarship Fund is a non-profit organization that awards scholarships to minority high school graduates entering into post-secondary education.


The scholarship provides assistance to young adults from Pennsylvania and New Jersey who otherwise would not have the financial means to achieve their educational goals. 


Zion Sincere Jackson was a gifted and exceptional young talent whose innovation and creativity in the arts developed into a passion for music. Zion began his post-secondary journey at Rutgers University in Camden, NJ in September of 2019, majoring in composition and music technology.

Zion was a light in his community that continues to shine even after his untimely death on October 12, 2019. Zion’s Project was born out of a desire to keep his light shining and to nurture that same passion and creativity in other talented youth.


Our Vision

To keep the legacy of Zion Sincere Jackson alive by helping to defray the financial burden of attending a college or university, so that students may pursue their goals in creative, visual, and performing arts.
