UNION COUNTY, NJ — For the year 2023, the Bayway Complex Community Advisory Panel has elected to offer High School Seniors who are residents of Linden, Rahway, Elizabeth and Staten Island the opportunity to be awarded a CAP scholarship. Several one-year scholarships will be awarded in the amount of $1,000 each to students in these four municipalities represented by the CAP.

The winners will be selected by the CAP Scholarship Committee, who will be taking the following areas into consideration when reviewing the applications: The applications must be computer-generated and all sections completed, including academics — transcript/SAT/ACT scores; financial need; essay; and a science/math teacher recommendation letter or letters. This scholarship is open to candidates who will be pursuing a college, university, career or vocational school education in the industrial, process technology, or engineering — chemical, civil, mechanical, environmental or computer — fields.
