A total of $29,000 has been donated by Kearny Bank to the scholarship funds of 27 high schools and two educational support organizations in nine New Jersey counties.
The funds represent the latest contributions in a long-standing, annual scholarship program managed by the Kearny Bank Foundation. Each recipient school or organization determines how its $1,000 scholarship award is allocated.
“Kearny Bank has a strong commitment to supporting education throughout New Jersey, and we’re very proud of our annual high school scholarship program,” Kearny Bank President and CEO Craig Montanaro said in a prepared statement. “Given the uniquely challenging circumstances of this spring, we’re particularly pleased to provide tuition support to these students from the class of 2020.”
Requests submitted directly by schools and related organizations were used to determine this year’s recipients.
In Middlesex County, the recipients are Old Bridge High School and Spotswood High School.
