Scholarship Funds

Scholarships are based on students’ financial needs, academic achievements, application information, interviews, participation in our Student Fund Drive.  Often sponsors will be looking for a particular personal quality, interest or career goal in selecting an applicant.

 

Community Scholarship Fund of Teaneck awarded over the past year $80,000 eto 57 high school seniors in Teaneck.  The range of individual scholarships is from $1000 to $2500.

97% of donations go directly to Scholarships.

Money for scholarships is obtained by an annual fund drive to past donors, civic, religious and business groups, and by the general public.  Students who apply for scholarships conduct their own fund drive in the spring at weekend canister collection spots in and around Teaneck.
