WFD ANNOUNCES 2014 COMMUNITY SERVICE SCHOLARSHIP

1/15/14 - The Westwood Volunteer Fire Department is pleased to announce our annual Community Service Scholarship Program for the college academic year beginning September 2014.  The program provides up to four (4) scholarship awards, totaling no more than $2,000 each year.  Each scholarship award is paid directly to the college the student attends and is applied toward such items as tuition, room and board, fees and books.

Applicants must be a resident of the Borough of Westwood, a current High School Senior, apply and file the appropriate admission application forms at any college that he/she may be interested in attending, and each scholarship winner must present an acceptance letter to an accredited college or university in order for the award to be paid to the institution.  All applicants must complete the Westwood Volunteer Fire Department Scholarship Application, verify a record of volunteer service to the citizens of the Borough of Westwood (NJ) with a letter from the community organization where you volunteered certifying your service and the approximate number of hours of volunteer service you provided during the past year, and write an essay (~500 words) explaining how your volunteer service to the Citizens of Westwood has affected your life.

The Westwood Volunteer Fire Department Scholarship Committee administers the scholarship program.  A separate Scholarship Review Committee comprised of leaders of area volunteer organizations reviews the scholarship applications, requests additional information and recommends candidates to receive the awards. The scholarship program is based on scholastic achievement, extra-curricular activities, and community service and is not decided based on financial need.
