MILLBURN, NJ - The Millburn-Short Hills Scholastic Boosters, which has been providing educational grants to township students for since 1947 years, is now accepting applications for grants for the 2017-2018 college year.  More than1,000  students, trying to close the shortfall in their college funding package, have received awards from The Boosters totaling more than $1,000,000.

 Individual Booster grants, which are based on demonstrated financial need, have ranged, in recent years, from $750 to $2,000 for the school year.  

Residents who would like to learn more about The Scholastic Boosters’ grant program and obtain a grant application should visit our new Web site www.msh-scholasticboosters.org  or write to P.O. Box 42, Millburn, N.J. 07041.  They also may obtain an application at the Millburn High School Guidance Office.  Applications must be completed and submitted no later than June 30, 2017.

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.
