The Chester Lioness Club annually offers two scholarships to students in the Class of 2017 residing in Chester, Mendham or Washington Township in Morris County. Each scholarship may be up to $1,000. Criteria for selection of candidates for these scholarships include academic record, classroom and extracurricular activities, community activities, individual interests and hobbies, and outstanding accomplishments in activities that demonstrate leadership and service. Financial need is also a consideration.
These scholarships are available not only to public high school students, but those attending private schools or being tutored at home as well.
Applications may be obtained in the College Resource Center at both West Morris Mendham and West Morris Central High Schools. The completed form must be returned to the College Resource Center at the high school by March 20. A letter requesting an application may be sent to the Chester Lioness Club in care of Anne MacMillan. Her telephone number is 908-879-7621. Completed applications must be forwarded to the Lioness Club by April 10.
The Chester Lioness Club is a service club that takes an active interest in the civic, cultural and social welfare of the community. For more information, contact Holly Simmenroth, publicity chairperson, at 908-879-5932.
