Since 1995, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cumberland & Salem Counties has been offering scholarships to youth graduating from high school. Total scholarship awards currently total more than $52,000 to more than 52 recipients.
The first scholarship was in memory of Jerry Smith and awarded to a high school student graduating from Cumberland Regional High School. That scholarship is now known as the Jerry Smith Memorial Scholarship. We awarded approximately 11 scholarships to students throughout Cumberland and Salem counties in 2016.
In 2016, the average scholarship award has been $1,000 and awarded to High School Bigs, matched Littles, waiting Littles, and children of volunteers and staff.
