Congrats!!! I received the award when I was graduating high school in Monmouth County. Because of this award, Montclair offered me a full scholarship for tuition and housing. Other state schools were offering similar packages for only recipients of this award. However, I decided to go to a private school in NYC :roll:. Hopefully the students put it to good use! :mrgreen:

It’s a nice program that should be continued. I wish them the best!

I believe so… Nice to see that the Bloustein Distinguished Scholars program is still around. I remember one year McGreevy cut funding for it.
