Scholarships will be awarded on a one-time basis for the 2020-2021 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 2020. Successful applicants will receive their scholarships at an awards dinner on Monday, May 11, 2020.

Eligibility is limited to the children of Morris County law enforcement and public safety personnel or Morris County high school seniors engaged in the branches reflected above.

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.
