Please Help Us With Scholarships

In 2009, all five schools at Seward had wonderful graduation rates with a very high percentage of students going on to colleges and universities. Today's students at Seward are bright, enthusiastic and articulate. Instead of graduating classes of 400 to 750 as in Seward's past, each of our small schools graduates 80-100 students. This ensures that students receive the attention needed to help make the right college choice. However, today's students face staggering tuition costs and they overwhelmingly come from challenging financial circumstances. In fact, in many cases these are the first members of their families to attend college. The need to provide scholarship is more important than ever. If you have the means, we urge you to consider establishing a scholarship in your name or a that of a family member who attended Seward. If you have interest in establishing a scholarship at Seward, please let us know and we will be happy to take you on a tour of Seward today. See for yourself just how meaningful and rewarding it would be to establish a scholarship at Seward. Meanwhile, if you would simply like to contribute to the general scholarship fund, please send all donations to the Seward Park High School Scholarship Fund, P.O. Box 778, Chester, NJ 07930-0778. Your donation can really make a difference! Thank you!!!!

2008 Seward Alumni Scholarships

There is no more enjoyable task for the Seward Park High School Alumni Association than to help today's students with scholarships to assist them in their pursuit of higher education. In the years ahead, we hope to establish as ambitious a scholarship program as possible. While the nature and administration of Seward Park has changed with the times, the students which form the five schools within the Seward Park High School campus are as refreshing and delightful as ever.

In June 2008, we were able to award the first Lillie Chasnoff scholarships. This scholarship was established by Lillie's daughter in order to commemorate her mother's appreciation for the education she received at Seward and her desire to assist today's students. Our scholarship board was thrilled and delighted with the caliber of the candidates this year. Three scholarships were awarded to one student from each of this year's graduating classes.
