Your Partner for Success
Through the Youth Scholarship Program, thousands of dollars have been given to students attending higher education institutions across our country. In fact, more than $300,000 has been given out by the participating states and ESA.
Today, ESA and the New Jersey Electronic Security Associations are involved in the scholarship program. The first place winner of each state’s program is automatically considered for the national ESA Youth Scholarship Program awards.
Awards are based on a combination of academic achievement, national test scores, extracurricular participation and the essay. In addition to completing the application and submitting the appropriate documentation, each student must write an essay explaining “What it means to me to have my parent or guardian involved in securing our community.
The scholarship awards, in the amounts of $1,500 for first prize and $1,000 for second prize, are available to qualified high school seniors.
An exciting aspect of this scholarship is that the first place winner from our state is eligible for the national scholarship awards. The ESA Youth Scholarship Program awards two scholarships. The first place national winner will receive $7,500 and the second place national winner will receive $2,500.
Please note that the deadline for all applications was March 23, 2018.
