Since 1990, the Cape May Beach Patrol Benevolent Association (CMBP-BA), an independent association composed of current and former CMBP lifeguards, has sought to help our lifeguards and the families of our guards afford college education. To that end, each year the Committee awards one or more applicants with a financial award to help offset the costs of education. For more information on this program, please contact the CMBP-BA. The basic requirements and procedures are below.
- Applications (link below) are due in lifeguard headquarters two weeks prior to the annual benevolent association reunion.
- The scholarship committee will select the award winners.
- The scholarship award winners will be announced at the annual reunion.
- All scholarship winners are asked to submit the following:
- A copy of their first semester grades (min. 2.5 GPA required)
- Second semester proof of registration
- Send to: Dennis DeSatnick, 1307 Trenton Ave., Cape May, NJ 08204
- The custodian of the fund will generate a check for each award winner directly from A.G. Edwards to their residence.
