Overview

The Scholarship Selection Committee is responsible for selecting recipients of the Franklin Park Community Scholarship Program. Borough residents wishing to serve on this committee must be able to evaluate and score student essays, understand Scholastic Aptitude Test Scores (SAT), Grade Point Averages (GPA) and, most importantly, they must be able to evaluate and score a student's involvement in their community, academic or work related activities. Community, academic and work related activities account for 50% of the applicant's score. Generally, 8 to 12 scholarship recipients are selected from a field of approximately 50 applications.

The Scholarship Selection Committee consists of 7 members, appointed by Borough Council for five-year terms.
