The Christopher CJ Morgan Memorial Scholarship Fund’s mission is to transform the lives of students by awarding scholarships to those who have demonstrated exceptional leadership, community service, and involvement in extracurricular activities. We are particularly committed to supporting veterans, military personnel, and law enforcement families, who have selflessly served our country and communities. Our pledge to these brave individuals is simple: to honor their unwavering dedication by providing them with the educational opportunities they deserve.


A Chicago, Illinois native who came of age in West Orange, New Jersey, Christopher “CJ” Morgan made it his business to live a life of example through living his faith and encouraging others. Keep his vision of uplifting leadership alive by making a difference in a student’s life, by donating to the Christopher “CJ” Morgan Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Christopher J.L. Morgan studied Law and Legal Studies at The United States Military Academy at West Point (West Point) where he was a rising Firstie (Senior) and scholar-athlete. He passed away on June 6, 2019 due to a training accident at West Point, but his legacy will live on through this scholarship fund.

We need your help to raise funds and to make this dream a reality. There’s a student out there that could make a difference in this world with your financial support.

There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.
