Investors Bank through the Investors Foundation awarded the NJAC Foundation a grant of $21,000.00 for county vocational-technical school graduates who plan on continuing their education at a county college or state college or university.
“Investors Bank and Investors Foundation are proud to support the NJAC Foundation,” said Investors Bank President and CEO Kevin Cummings. “NJAC has been integral in providing educational opportunities to so many of our bright students here in New Jersey—work that is vital for the long-term success of our communities. We applaud NJAC and wish the scholarship winners all the best in their future endeavors.”
The Foundation plans to partner with the New Jersey Council of County Vocational Technical Schools to identify potential candidates, and will distribute two $500.00 scholarships to well-deserving students in all twenty-one counties across the State. Since 2011, Investors Bank has awarded the NJAC Foundation grant monies totaling $115,000.00, which has helped an estimated 230 county vocational-technical school students pay for their education.
“I’m grateful that Investors Bank and the NJAC Foundation have once again partnered on this important and timely initiative to provide county vocational-technical school graduates with valuable scholarships that will help them and their families meet the ever increasing financial demands of pursuing an education,” commented NJAC Foundation President Donald De Leo.
The NJAC Foundation is a non-profit organization affiliated with the New Jersey Association of Counties (NJAC), and is committed to providing innovative educational opportunities for county vocational-technical school and county college students.
