OCEAN COUNTY – On August 29, 2019, the Ocean County Mayor’s Association presents the 28th Annual Scholarship Golf Classic.

This event enables Ocean County mayors, corporations, and friends to renew and strengthen relationships vital to our Ocean County high schools and communities, and provides an opportunity to help students who need financial assistance. Proceeds from this golf outing fund the scholarship program. The golf outing over the past 27 years has awarded over $690,000 in scholarships.

The Ocean County Mayor’s Association awards 20 $1,000 scholarships to one high school senior from each Ocean County high school. Four additional $500 scholarships are awarded to students attending Ocean County Vocational Technical schools. The association also awards $5,000 to the Trustees of the Ocean County College for a scholarship fund distributed to incoming OCC freshmen. In addition, the William T.

Simmons Memorial Scholarship provides $1,000, the Russell K. Corby Scholarship, and Arthur P. Petracco memorial Scholarship provides $1,000 each to students entering various fields.
