Investors Bank, through the Investors Foundation, has awarded the New Jersey Association of Counties Foundation a grant of $21,000.00 for county vocational-technical school graduates who plan on continuing their educations at a county college or state college or university.

“Investors Bank and Investors Foundation are proud to support the NJAC Foundation,” said Investors Bank President and CEO Kevin Cummings.

“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,” Cummings said.

The NJAC Foundation plans to partner 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 twenty-one counties across the State.

“I’m grateful that Investors Bank and the NJAC Foundation have once again partnered on this wonderful initiative to provide county vocational-technical school graduates with this unique opportunity to help them and their families meet the ever-increasing financial demands of pursuing an education,” said NJAC Foundation President Donald De Leo.
