About the Scholarship

In an effort to give back to the community the Roxbury Area Chamber of Commerce began awarding a scholarship to a deserving area high school senior in 2013.

Money for the scholarship was raised from RACC fundraisers like the Taste of Roxbury and our Town-wide Garage & Yard Sales, as well as through donations by our members and the general public.

Scholarship Eligibility

The applicant must be a New Jersey resident, studying at an accredited college (in state or out-of-state) acceptable to the Roxbury Area Chamber of Commerce Selection Committee, in active pursuit of an Undergraduate or Graduate Degree in Engineering or Business related fields.

Financial need, academic ability, personal interests and personal references will be evaluated in determining the successful recipient. All data and materials contained in and supplemental to this application will be used only by the Roxbury Area Chamber of Commerce Selection Committee and only to evaluate prospective candidates for determining the successful recipients.

These scholarships are awarded to the recipient for one academic year only. The same recipient may reapply for the subsequent years by submitting a new application and transcript of academic performance for the previous year to the Roxbury Area Chamber of Commerce.
