Investors gives $21K grant to NJAC Foundation to support scholarships for vo-tech students

Investors Bank, through the Investors Foundation, has awarded the New Jersey Association of Counties Foundation a grant of $21,000 to provide scholarships for county vocational-technical school graduates who plan on continuing their education at a county college or state college or university.

The NJAC Foundation is partnering with the New Jersey Council of County Vocational-Technical Schools to identify potential candidates and will distribute two $500 scholarships to well-deserving students in all 21 counties across the state.

“Investors Bank and the Investors Foundation are proud to support the NJAC Foundation,” Investors Bank CEO Kevin Cummings said. “NJAC has been integral in providing educational opportunities to so many of our bright students here in New Jersey — work that is vital for the long-term success of our communities. We applaud NJAC and wish the scholarship winners all the best in their future endeavors.”

The grant is just the latest in a long list of support efforts by Investors Bank. Since 2011, Investors has awarded the NJAC Foundation grant monies totaling $200,000, which has helped over 250 county vocational-technical school graduates continue their education in New Jersey.

NJAC Foundation President Donald De Leo said he appreciates the partnership.

“I’m grateful that Investors Bank and the NJAC Foundation have once again partnered on this important and timely initiative to provide county vocational-technical school graduates with valuable scholarships that will help them and their families meet the ever-increasing financial demands of pursuing an education,” he said.

The NJAC Foundation is a nonprofit organization affiliated with the New Jersey Association of Counties that is committed to providing innovative educational opportunities for county vocational-technical school and county college students.
