The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, in order to encourage the continuing educational development of the citizens in our community, will be offering one (1) Post-Secondary scholarship in the amount of $1,000 and two (2) scholarships in the amount of $500 each. These scholarships will be awarded to individuals who best meet the criteria as described below. Determination of the winners will be judged by a panel of Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce members. It is the Chamber’s intention, not obligation, to offer one scholarship in each of the categories listed below. If we do not receive a qualified applicant in a particular category, the scholarship will be given to the most qualified of the applications we receive.
The first scholarship will be awarded to a graduating Brooklyn High School senior who currently resides in the City of Brooklyn and will be attending a recognized college or university full time in the fall. The other scholarships will be available to any Brooklyn High School senior, Brooklyn or Old Brooklyn resident who will be attending a recognized college or university full-time in the fall.
