About our Educational Foundation

Our Educational Foundation continues to give scholarships – with your help – year after year.

We award scholarships for continuing education, vocational and academic. Scholarships can be awarded to adults as well as to graduating high school seniors.

The Brick Chamber Educational Foundation gave $27,000 in scholarships to 14 deserving students in 2022.

Since the inception of the scholarship program, the Brick Township Chamber of Commerce has awarded almost $500,000 - nearly one-half million dollars - in scholarship funds to students of all ages who are pursuing their dreams.

Why do we do it? For several reasons:

Education is an investment in our future. A prepared, educated workforce is essential for our community to thrive and prosper.

Educational support is a wonderful way for the business community to give back to the local consumers who support our members throughout the year.

Our members and their employees, AND the children of either are eligible for scholarships!

All graduating/graduated students from both Brick high schools and the Ocean County Vocational Technical School are also eligible for scholarships.
