Cinderella’s Closet of Monmouth County is proud to offer a merit-based college or continued education scholarship of $1000, awarded to one high school senior who demonstrates strong values, commitment and motivation to pursue a college or vocational education. The recipient will be selected by the Board of the organization and the scholarship paid directly to the college or trade school towards the student’s first-year tuition.
We have awarded our 2019 College Scholarship to Julio Santiago-Reyes of Long Branch High School. The award in the amount of $1,000.00 is in recognition of his commitment to academic excellence and community service. Julio will be attending Brookdale Community College in the fall. In 2019, we had a second scholarship winner, Jadah Alexis Hunter from Colts Neck High School. The award in the amount of $500 is in recognition of her drive and social responsibility. She will also be attending Brookdale Community College. We wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors. They were both selected from several applications from around the state of New Jersey.
Cinderella’s Closet was founded in 2007 to help our peers attend prom in style while fostering the ideals of service to the community and academic distinction. It has been our dream to establish a scholarship for student who live by and strive for the values that Cinderella’s Closet promotes so that young adults are given the tools and support needed to carry those values into adulthood, becoming the leaders our world needs.
