NJR Service Corporation has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children or stepchildren who plan to continue their education in college. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school of the student’s choice.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarships and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the Abrams-Koerner Memorial Scholarship Program must be:
Up to five (5) Abrams-Koerner Memorial Scholarship awards will be awarded at $1,500 each. A sixth award, the Julie Hoecker-Caverly Memorial Scholarship, will be granted at $2,000, and will be awarded to the top-ranking applicant. Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study, continued employment of the student’s parent at NJR Service Corporation, and continuation of the program by NJR Service Corporation.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Awards will not be made for study at a government-subsidized military academy.
Applicants will be notified by late March. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of NJR Service Corporation. Payments are made on August 1.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of:
Financial need will not be considered.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of NJR Service Corporation play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
