For the past 25 years, SFIC benefactors Mark and Kathy Walchak have provided this unique summer experience to high school students with an interest in science throughout Northern New Jersey. Current seniors Eric Han, ’21 and Max Rueda, ’21, who attended in the summer of 2019, are among the past Prep students selected for the scholarship.
