About the Scholarship
The Mendham Fire Department is a non-profit organization that provides Fire and Rescue services to the Borough of Mendham. The Department was formed in 1905 and has operated as a total volunteer effort since its inception. Due to recent waning volunteerism, the Mendham Fire Department has recognized the need to recruit members to assist in the operations of the Department. The Department is seeking to award those individuals that have exhibited strong leadership qualities, those recognizing the need for volunteerism in society, those dedicated to teamwork and those dedicated to the pursuit of a higher education.
