The Upper Saddle River 5K Run has established an annual Scholarship program. We offer grants to selected graduating high school seniors who are matriculating to a full-time post-secondary education institution.
To be eligible for this scholarship the student must complete the written application. A scholarship committee shall select the best-qualified applicant based upon a
application, scholastic academic record and participation in community and/or school activities.
Application and related materials will be accepted from November 27, 2017 until
May 1, 2018.
The Scholarship will be awarded in June of 2018 at Upper Saddle
River Borough Hall. To be eligible for this scholarship the student must reside
in the communities that serve the Northern Highlands Regional High School District
(Upper Saddle River, Saddle River, Allendale or Ho-Ho-Kus), Ramsey High School,
Mahwah High School, or Waldwick High School and complete the written application.
The decision of the Scholarship Committee is final.
The Extra Mile Scholarship was created to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of The
Dick Meighan Memorial Run. The scholarship acknowledges the outstanding efforts
of graduating High School seniors who have made a difference in our community
and gone the extra mile with community service participation along with academic
achievements and extra-curricular activities.
If you have any questions please contact Sean Bookstaver 201-236-1829.
