Mayor John G. Ducey would like to inform high school juniors and seniors in Brick Township who are planning to continue their education after high school about a scholarship opportunity offered by the New Jersey State League of Municipalities. The League is offering three $1,000 scholarships through the Louis Bay 2nd Future Municipal Leaders Scholarship Competition. The statewide competition centers on the theme “How has local government played a role in your life regarding the ongoing pandemic?”
“Brick Township has many exceptional young students. I encourage all juniors and seniors to participate in this scholarship competition and show just how exceptional, talented and dedicated the young people of our community are,” said Mayor Ducey.
Applicants will be required to write an essay of approximately 500 words with the “What My Municipal Government Does Best.” Judging is based solely on the essay including originality, technical composition and appropriateness and effective articulation of theme.
Students wishing to apply for the scholarship competition can download an application packet HERE. If you would like to request an application by email, please send an email to email@example.com.
The scholarship is open to all high school juniors and seniors. Residents who live in Brick but attend schools in other communities should return their application to Mayor Ducey’s office.
A committee will select one essay from Brick Township as a semi-finalist. That application will be forwarded and reviewed by the NJSLOM Scholarship Committee. That committee will select 15 finalists and 3 winners. The winners will each receive a $1,000 scholarship and their essay will be featured in New Jersey Municipalities Magazine.
All applications must be returned to Mayor Ducey’s office by Friday, March 18, 2022. Completed applications should be mailed to Mayor John Ducey, Attention: NJSLOM Scholarship, 401 Chambers Bridge Road, Brick, NJ, 08723.
