The Eastern Monmouth Area Chamber of Commerce (EMACC) Educational Foundation intends to grant at least three (3) $1,250 scholarships to eligible persons who meet the established criteria. The awards are as follows:
- $1,250 for a “returning” student. A returning student is a student whose education has been interrupted and who will be at least 25 years old as of September 1st.
- $1,250 for a college student entering his/her junior or senior year who is in need of help to complete his/her degree because of increased expenses or decreased finances.
- $1,250 for a vocational student pursuing post high school vocational education. Post high school vocational education does not include pursuit of a four (4) year college degree.
Scholarships will generally be awarded to full time students. However, part-time students whose application reflects serious attention to completing a course of study will also be considered.
The individual must live or work within the EMACC service area, Monmouth County, New Jersey, or work for a Chamber member and be recommended by a Chamber member in good standing. See our website for more information.
