About Us

Elizabeth L. Poff Education Fund

The Elizabeth L. Poff Education Fund was founded in 1996 to honor the legacy of this remarkable woman, who left us much too early. Mrs. Poff was a champion for children and her goal was to see them succeed.

In Mrs. Poffs honor the Glassboro Child Development Centers will begin to offer scholarships to Glassboro High School seniors for post-secondary education, including technical school, community college, or four year college. Four $250.00 scholarships will be awarded at GHS Awards night in June.

  • Be a 12th grade student attending Glassboro High School
  • Have attended the Glassboro Child Development Centers preschool, school age, summer camp, or Counselors in Training (CIT) programs
  • Have a 2.5 or higher GPA
  • Plan to continue with post-secondary education
  • Submit high school transcript and two letters of recommendation from school or community members
