EDISON – The North Central Jersey Association of REALTORS® (NCJAR) recently contributed three $2,500 scholarships to the New Jersey Association of REALTORS® Education Foundation. Recipients are selected based on academic achievements, financial needs, interest in real estate endeavors, and contributions to family, school and community. The three NCJAR-donated scholarships, and their recipients, are:
- Dean A Gallo Award – Carissa M. Bowen (Edison)
- Michael A. Campbell Award – Brittany O’Keefe (Rutherford)
- Edward A. Ward Award – Brenda R. Falk (Dayton)
“Helping fund a student’s educational future is extremely important to us,” says Lorraine Hunt-Kopacz, NCJAR President. “We truly believe that young people who excel in academics, athletics, and extra curricular activities deserve to be recognized and rewarded. We couldn’t be happier to assist in the bright future they have ahead of them in both the classroom and in their careers.”
Scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $2,500 were awarded by the foundation to 37 students, to use toward furthering their educations. The scholarships, totaling $53,500, were presented to recipients during a recent event at The Pines Manor in Edison.
Scholarships are available to high school seniors who will attend a four-year institution, students enrolled in four-year institutions, and students pursuing graduate studies in real estate or related fields. The Foundation provides scholarships to members of the New Jersey Association of REALTORS® (NJAR) or relatives of NJAR members living in New Jersey.
