The ESSEX Scholarship program is designed to financially assist ESSEX crew descendants to attend higher education beyond K-12. College, University, Community or Junior College and Trade schools are all acceptable. The Scholarship program provides the successful candidate $2,500.00 to be used towards their college tuition.

We hope that everyone takes advantage of this program.
