On the Road to Higher Education

The NJM Insurance Group awarded the NJAC Foundation a grant of $5,250.00 for county vocational-technical school graduates who plan on continuing their education in New Jersey at a county college or State college or university.

“I’m grateful that NJM Insurance Group and the NJAC Foundation have once again partnered on this important and timely initiative to provide our county vocational-technical school graduates with generous scholarships that will assist students with meeting the ever increasing financial demands of pursuing an education,” said NJAC Foundation President Donald De Leo.

The NJAC Foundation plans to distribute one $1,750.00 scholarship in each county where NJM Insurance Group maintains a corporate office, which includes Atlantic, Mercer, and Morris counties. NJM was founded in 1913, and has worked steadily ever since to build a reputation for financial stewardship, integrity, and superior service.  Today, NJM is the Garden State’s largest workers compensation carrier, and a leading provider of personal and commercial auto insurance and homeowners’ coverage.

“We commend NJM Insurance Group for its continued commitment to the communities in which it serves, and look forward to working with our county vocational-technical schools in selecting hard working students dedicated to advancing their education at home in New Jersey,” commented 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.
