A. The scholarship is for one year only. You may apply for another scholarship next year.

A. Yes. Scholarships are awarded regardless of their year in a school of higher education.
Q. My parents are divorced and I do not live in Atlantic County or Cape May County but my parent belongs to one of the qualifying groups, do I still qualify for scholarship consideration?
A. Yes. Your residency does not disqualify you. If your parent meets the criteria, you qualify to apply.

A. Yes, you may apply every year regardless if you were awarded a scholarship or not in prior years.
Q. My grades were not good. Do I still have a chance to get a scholarship?
