A PROUD TRADITION OF SERVING THE STUDENTS OF SCOTCH PLAINS AND FANWOOD
The Scotch Plains-Fanwood Scholarship Foundation continues its tradition, begun in 1966, of assisting graduating high school seniors and current college students who reside in Scotch Plains and Fanwood, New Jersey achieve their goal of a college or other post-high school education.

Since its inception, the Scholarship Foundation has proudly awarded $3,070,977 to 2,948 local students. Each scholarship is made available by the generosity of many individuals and local organizations and is considered an investment in the next generation with the return on that investment benefiting our community and communities around the globe..
Graduating seniors from public or private high schools and current college students who plan to attend a recognized post-high school institution in the fall of 2018 may apply for scholarship assistance. Recognized post-high school institutions include two and four year colleges, as well as business, technical and vocational schools. The Board of Trustees encourages all qualifying students to apply for these scholarships.
