Service League Offers Scholarships to Local Students

SCOTCH PLAINS – The Fanwood-Scotch Plains Service League, an all-volunteer organization that operates The Thrift Shop at 1741 East Second Street in Scotch Plains, is currently seeking applicants for its 2013 college scholarships.

Students who are residents of Fanwood or Scotch Plains and are seniors at Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School or other area high schools, or who are currently attending college or vocational school, are eligible to apply.

The scholarships are awarded on the basis of a student’s record of volunteer service and community involvement plus financial need, evidence of financial self-help, and academic promise. In 2012, three local students received $3,000 each in scholarship aid. The League’s Scholarship Committee screens all applications and determines the number and amount of awards in May of each year.

To be considered for the League scholarships, all applicants, including current scholarship recipients and students attending college or other programs, must submit a completed and signed Local Scholarship Application, a personal letter, grade transcripts, and SAT or ACT scores, if applicable. The application form and complete instructions are included in the 2013 Local Scholarship Booklet, available at the Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School Guidance Department, or online at the Scotch Plains-Fanwood Public Schools’ website, www.spfk12.org. Information is also available on the Service League website at scotchplainsthriftshop.weebly.com.

Please note that all materials must be mailed to the Service League’s Scholarship Chairperson at the Thrift Shop’s address, 1741 East Second Street in  Scotch Plains, postmarked on or before February 15, 2013. Announcement of the 2013 scholarship winners will be made in the spring at the SPFHS Awards Night.
