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, or 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 on behalf of our county vocational-technical school graduates across the State,” said NJAC Foundation President Donald De Leo.
The Foundation plans to award one $850.00 scholarship to a well-deserving student nominated by their schools superintendent in each county served by PSEG. 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 in rewarding hard working students dedicated to creating green solutions and advancing their education,” said De Leo.
