The PSEG Foundation awarded the NJAC Foundation a grant of $12,000.00 for county vocational-technical school graduates who plan on studying environmental science, green design, green technology, alternative energy, and other related subjects at a county college or state college or university in the fall.
“As our nation grows increasingly proactive about protecting the environment for future generations, I’m thrilled that PSEG and the NJAC Foundation have once again partnered on this important and timely initiative to support county vocational-technical school graduates across the State,” commented NJAC Foundation President Donald De Leo.
The NJAC Foundation plans to award one $850.00 scholarship to a student nominated by the superintendent of their school in each county where PSEG maintains a service territory or generation facility. These counties include: Bergen, Burlington, Camden, Essex, Gloucester, Hudson, Mercer, Middlesex, Morris, Passaic, Salem, Somerset, Sussex, and Union counties.
“On behalf of the Board of Trustees of the NJAC Foundation, I commend PSEG for its continued commitment and generosity to the communities in which it serves, and look forward to working with our county vocational-technical schools to select talented students dedicated to creating green solutions and advancing their education,” said 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.
