In support of scholarships for students, the Union County College Foundation was awarded $10,000 from the Northfield Bank Foundation to establish the Northfield Bank Annual Scholarship on February 18, 2016. The funds will be used to award ten $1,000 scholarships to full-time students who reside in the Northfield Bank service area. Those communities are Avenel, East Brunswick, Linden, Milltown, Monroe Township, Rahway, Union, Westfield, and Woodbridge, in New Jersey, and in Staten Island, New York. Students must have a 3.0 grade point average to qualify to apply. The Northfield Bank Foundation focuses its efforts on projects to support education, as well as other civic-minded projects that improve the quality of life. This is the third year that the Northfield Bank Foundation has generously donated to the College, providing more than $30,000 in scholarship funding.
This annual scholarship joins more than 100 awarded annually to Union County College students who show financial need and meet the various requirements of the many scholarships available. The list of annual scholarships can be found at www.uccfoundation.org and click on “Students.”
