The Westwood Volunteer Fire Department is pleased to announce
our annual Community Service Scholarship Program for the college
academic year beginning September 2015. 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.
Deadline to submit
applications is February 14, 2015.

Scholarship Committee administers the scholarship program.
A separate Scholarship Review Committee comprised of leaders of
area volunteer organizations reviews the scholarship
