The Millburn-Short Hills Scholastic Boosters have provided educational grants to township students since 1947, assisting some 960 students to close the shortfall in their college funding package, with awards 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.

The Scholastic Boosters are now accepting applications for grants for the 2013-2014 college year. To find out more about the grants, including eligibility criteria, and/or to obtain a grant application form visit their new web site at www.msh-scholasticboosters.org or write to P.O. Box 42, Millburn, N.J. 07041.  Students can obtain a form at the Millburn High School Guidance Office.  Applications must be completed and submitted no later than June 26, 2013.

Boosters President John Ward explained, “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,” he added. “The Boosters continues rely on the generosity of this community to help these worthy students bridge some of that shortfall and lessen their financial burdens.”
