Congratulations to 2017 Scholarship Winners
NJRC was pleased to celebrate our 6th Scholarship Program Anniversary as part of our Community Outreach. The goal of our committee is to select college-bound high school seniors who relocated during their high school years. To accomplish this goal, we contacted high schools in 11 New Jersey counties seeking students who relocated, maintained a GPA of 3.0 or higher, balanced a mix of extracurricular and scholastic activities, and told their relocation story through a compelling essay. Many of the schools have supported our program over the years, and look forward to hearing from NJRC for this scholarship opportunity for their students. This year we received 20 applicants from the 11 counties, and our Committee selected 4 winners.
This year we are proud to support and recognize Deonte Freeman who will attend McDaniel College, Morteza (Morty) Hagh who is undecided, Grace McCormick who has committed to Auburn University, and Ciara Mulvihill who will join Passaic County Community College. Each student will receive a $1,000 scholarship. We met each of the students and their parents/guests during our April, 2017 conference, held at The Palace in Somerset, NJ. We are so proud of the students, congratulate them on their achievements, and wish them well in their college endeavors.
Special thanks to the generosity of our sponsors over the past 6 years who have supported this rewarding program. To date, we have awarded $27,000 to 28 deserving students.
2016 Scholarship Recipient Award Gala
Another Successful Scholarship Program
We contacted high schools throughout 11 New Jersey counties and received 28 applications. Upon review, our Scholarship Committee had the very difficult task of selecting the winning students. While we believe all of the students are winners, we had to make the difficult decision and select the award recipients. Each winning student will receive a $1,000 scholarship to the college of their choice. We celebrated the accomplishments of these exemplary students at our Spring 2016 Conference held in Bedminster, NJ and we are proud to support and recognize; Issac Bayou, Daniel Goldstein, Adam Lorimer, Gillian Tapp and Abigail Waugh. These five students accomplished remarkable scholastic achievements while facing the challenges of relocating during their high school years. We applaud them!
