The Women’s Club of Caldwell awards five High School Scholarships and two NEW Continuing Education Scholarships for Caldwell area women.
New for 2023 –
Two Non-Traditional Scholarships for Women
Service Scholarship Award For
High School Seniors Attending James Caldwell HS, West Essex HS, and Mt. St. Dominic Academy
As a part of our community outreach and recognition for service, the Women’s Club of Caldwell awards five (5) $2000 scholarships to deserving Caldwell area high school Seniors each year. The focus of these Scholarships is to recognize students who have performed outstanding service to the local community during their high school tenure. We look at the student’s resume highlighting the type of service, the number of hours served, as well as grades, extracurricular activities, employment, and awards. The required essay also asks students to reflect upon their service and its impact on their personal growth and the community at large.
Applications and related requirements are part of the scholarship literature disseminated to the students by each High School Guidance Department. Check with the school’s Guidance Department for the digital download. The application period is usually from January to April of the student’s senior year.
The Women’s Club of Caldwell’s Education Committee reviews all completed applications and selects the recipients in the spring. Scholarships are presented at the awards ceremony in each high school In June.
