All local scholarship opportunities that counselors add may be accessed by students at any of our schools. You can review the FAQs to get started, or just click “New Topic” to create a new account. Feel free to add local scholarships you don’t see listed. Anyone with questions or requiring assistance may email Susan Sohayda at the Academy of Allied Health and Science. Susan can be reached at ssohayda@ctemc.org. The scholarship resource site is located at http://www.monmouthcountyscholarships.com
