Scholarship

This 200 Club of Morris County scholarship program began in 1982 to provide college, post-high school education or vocational school assistance to children of active public safety personnel. Scholarship eligibility is limited to high school seniors serving in a branch of public safety or whose a parent is actively serving or retired from a public safety capacity in Morris County.

Application Process

Scholarships will be awarded on a one-time basis for the 2016-2017 academic years. Award criteria are academic performance, community service, extracurricular activities and family financial need. The scholarship committee will review and approve applications impartially with no knowledge of the applicants’ identities. Announcement of the awards will be made in mid-April 2016.

Eligibility

Applications will be limited to high school seniors who have a parent actively serving Morris County in a law enforcement/public safety capacity, or whose parent has retired and has satisfied their agency’s retirement eligibility requirements, or are themselves in one of the following branches of law enforcement or public safety:

• Police and Law Enforcement, including Federal and State agencies
• Fire Department (including volunteer fire fighters)
• Volunteer Ambulance Corps/First Aid Squads

Eligibility is limited to the children of law enforcement and public safety personnel or high school seniors engaged in the branches reflected above. State Police eligibility is restricted to those who live or have their primary assignment in Morris County. Children of personnel working in clerical or other non-related public safety duties are not eligible. Likewise, children of members of The Two Hundred Club of Morris County are not eligible.

How to Apply

Step 1:
Check with your Guidance Counselor to be sure your scholastic information can be released to The 200 Club! Your school’s Guidance Department may require you and/or a parent to complete a release form before they can furnish this information to us. Be sure to do this before you complete our on-line scholarship application so there is no delay in having your application considered. We will be sending your Guidance Counselor an email to request the information we need. DO NOT EMAIL OR MAIL ANYTHING TO US AS IT WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.

Step 2:
Print a copy of our application and use it as a checklist so you can gather all the necessary data before you enter that information on-line. This is important because you will not be able to save your application and return to complete it at a later time.
