Our Scholarship Program was established since 1959 and we are proud to continue this legacy: To support our Youth in their pursuit of a College Degree.  Education expands one’s horizons; it brings hope for a better future. Every year since its inception, a Team of Highly-Educated Volunteers, evaluates each Application thoroughly. Our goal is to select the most deserving Recipient, the smartest & brightest who gives back to the community.



We are actively seeking Sponsors to partner with us. Together we can help more Applicants who are in dire need. We welcome any Individuals, Families, Small Businesses, Corporates, Non-Profits, Foundations, Religious, Social or Civic Groups. While we support its Administration, You are free to Name it Your way, (perhaps You wish to honor a Loved One). If you are interested or have any questions, contact us by email.
