In 1969, the Grant W. Johnson Memorial Scholarship was established by the Republican Women of Essex County to honor former Republican Assemblyman Grant W. Johnson. Since that time, the scholarship has been awarded annually to deserving graduates in Essex County. The scholarship will be awarded in the amount of $1,000.
The application requirements include: Residency in Essex County, a graduating senior with acceptance in a degreed college curriculum, registered affiliation with the Republican Party by student and/or parent or guardian at the time of application, providing a copy of the secondary school transcript and submitting an essay. Other award parameters must be met by the award recipient prior to receiving the $1,000. These parameters are explained in the application form.
All guidance counselors in high schools having residents from Essex County have been provided with further information on the scholarship application. Students meeting the above criteria are encouraged to submit an application and essay. Submittal deadline is Thursday, April 30.
