“Every year, the trustees have the distinct pleasure of getting to know dozens of accomplished students through the application process,” said Judy Lewis, 2016 President of the New Jersey Realtors® Education Foundation, a non-profit organization that fosters education, promotes knowledge, and assists in the education of students pursuing a college or university degree. “When our biggest problem is having a hard time making scholarship selections, you know the pool of applicants is full of inspiring, intelligent students.”
This year, New Jersey Realtors® Educational Foundation was proud to award 41 deserving students a total of more than $50,000 in scholarships. Criteria for selection include academic achievements, financial need, interest in real estate endeavors, and contributions to family, school and communities. High school seniors who will be attending an undergraduate four-year institution, or students currently enrolled in an undergraduate four-year institution are eligible. In addition, they must be, or be related to, a New Jersey Realtor®.
“As an association, we look forward to recognizing these students every year and congratulating them on their educational path,” said Tg Glazer, 2016 President of New Jersey Realtors®.
