The Greater Newton Chamber of Commerce has served our community for nearly 80 years. Its mission is to advocate growth and economic vitality to benefit its members and the communities it serves. In doing so, it hopes to advance the commercial, financial, industrial and civic interests of its members, to sustain a working partnership between business and government interests, and to promote the benefits of Chamber membership to business and concerned citizens.
As part of this mission, the Chamber believes in investing in the future of its community. One way it has demonstrated this commitment is through its scholarship program, which benefits graduating area high school seniors in the pursuit of further education or career training.
The Greater Newton Chamber of Commerce is comprised of businesses and individuals in our region who strive each day to make the area a wonderful place to work and live. The students selected for scholarships also share these values, and we are confident they will continue to serve the community as they further their education and embark on their careers of choice.
Scholarships are given each year to local students from Newton High School, Kittatinny High School, and/or Sussex County Technical School via a dedicated Scholarship Fund which is supported through direct donations and fundraising efforts at Chamber events. The annual Taste of Newton event, held in September, contributes the majority of the Chamber’s scholarship funds each year.
To apply for a scholarship, request an application from your high school’s guidance department. Scholarship applications are typically available in February, and due back in April, of each year. Scholarships are awarded in June.
