Published on March 04, 2021
EAST WINDSOR TOWNSHIP. East Windsor Township Mayor Janice S. Mironov announced that East Windsor Township, in conjunction with the New Jersey State League of Municipalities, is offering junior and senior high school students an interesting scholarship opportunity.
East Windsor Township and the New Jersey State League of Municipalities have teamed up to offer three $1,000 scholarships through the Future Municipal Leaders Scholarship Competition. This statewide scholarship competition centers on the question “How has local government played a role in your life regarding the ongoing pandemic?” and seeks to advance the virtues of elected and volunteer members of the community, while raising awareness of municipal government in general.
According to Mayor Mironov, “This is a positive program for junior and senior high school students, which provides assistance toward higher education, while spotlighting the important role of municipal government and officials. By offering this type of program, we hope it will provide a greater insight and interest in the function and workings of local government, especially by young people.”
Mayor Mironov will appoint a committee which will select a semi-finalist from East Windsor Township and forward the semi-finalist’s entry to the Scholarship Committee of the New Jersey State League of Municipalities (NJSLOM) for their consideration. The NJSLOM Scholarship Committee will select 15 finalists and 3 winners from the State of New Jersey.
A full application package can be obtained through the Municipal Clerk’s Office, 16 Lanning Boulevard, East Windsor, New Jersey or by calling (609) 443-4000, ext. 238. Entries should be submitted to the Mayor’s Office by Wednesday, March 31, 2021.
