Scholarship

The Dick Meighan Memorial Run and The Extra Mile Scholarship are in memory of Dick Meighan, a beloved father, neighbor, coach and friend.

The Dick Meighan Memorial Run has established an annual Scholarship program. We offer a $2000 grant for a graduating high school senior who is matriculating to a full-time post-secondary education institution.

To be eligible for this scholarship the student must complete the written application. A scholarship committee shall select the best-qualified applicant based upon a written application, scholastic academic record and participation in community and/or school activities.

Application and related materials will be accepted from November 27, 2014 until May 1, 2015.

The Scholarship will be awarded in June of 2015 at Upper Saddle River Borough Hall. To be eligible for this scholarship the student must reside in the communities that serve the Northern Highlands Regional High School District (Upper Saddle River, Saddle River, Allendale or Ho-Ho-Kus), Ramsey High School, Mahwah High School, or Waldwick High School and complete the written application. The decision of the Scholarship Committee is final.

The Extra Mile Scholarship was created to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of The Dick Meighan Memorial Run. The scholarship acknowledges the outstanding efforts of graduating High School seniors who have made a difference in our community and gone the extra mile with community service participation along with academic achievements and extra-curricular activities.
If you have any questions please contact Liz O'Sullivan at 201-236-9535 or Sean Bookstaver 201-236-1829.
