Community Service Scholarships

The Park Slope Civic Council awarded Community Service Scholarships to four outstanding high school students at a special presentation on Wednesday, May 25, 2022, on the plaza in front of the John Jay Educational Complex. The recipients of the scholarships are graduating seniors attending the four high schools within the John Jay Educational Complex and have exemplified an impressive level of volunteer and community service. Each student received a $2,500 scholarship to assist them with their post-secondary education.

The Community Service Scholarships are possible as a result of the proceeds from private donations, and the Civic Council’s food and drink tasting fundraising event, Food For Thought.  Although the Civic Council was prevented from hosting  our recent fundraisers due to the Covid pandemic, we remain optimistic and aim to resume this wonderful event this year. Save the Date! Wednesday evening,  October 19, 2022 at the Picnic House in Prospect Park!

Much gratitude and thanks to all who have participated in and attended Food For Thought in past years. Your contributions to this event have made these community service scholarships possible and we look forward to seeing you in October!
