Who Can Apply:
- As first-generation college graduates, my wife and I personally know the difficulties and hurdles that many families face in affording a college education. We both met at Elizabeth High School in New Jersey and attended universities here in the state. Due to financial hardships at home, my wife had to work full time in order to afford her schooling.
- Because of the hardships that she faced in order to get an education, we created this scholarship to give $2500 to 2 first generation college students in New Jersey. Our education both in high school and in college has provided us with a gateway to great careers. We look forward to providing that same opportunity to someone in need.
- In order to apply, you must be a high school senior or undergraduate student who is active in extracurricular activities and has a GPA of 3.5 or above.
Submission: Tell us what being a first-generation college graduate means to you and how your extracurricular activities have contributed to shaping who you’ve become.
Deadline: April 24, 2022
