These scholarships are meant to assist GSTA Members’ children who wish to pursue a college education or technical degree at an accredited Technical/Vocational School or two year or four-year college or university.

Scholarships are made based on academic potential, financial need, and special circumstances without reference to race, creed, gender, disability, religion or national origin.

Applicants must be New Jersey residents who are dependent children (naturally and legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee), age 23 and under, of a regular GSTA Member or associate member in good standing.
