Students who reside in Millburn Township may apply for a grant for any or all of their years of post-high school, undergraduate education.

Boosters President Jennifer Baer explained that “unlike government and private loans, The Boosters’ support need not be repaid. Every student—and their family—who receives a Boosters Grant has already been willing to put himself or herself under considerable financial obligations that will follow them well past their college years.

“Funding for Boosters grants comes from our annual campaign,” she added. “The Boosters continues to rely on the generosity of this community to help these worthy students bridge some of that shortfall and lessen their financial burdens.”

Donations to The Boosters can be made through the mail or directly through the Web site.
