United Way of Passaic County Announces 2018 Vincent D. Pavese Scholarship

2018 Vincent D. Pavese Scholarship

January 24, 2018; Paterson, NJ: There will be two scholarships awarded to two Passaic County high school seniors who have exhibited a commitment to community service and who plan to pursue a career in public service such as government, social work, health care, and education.
 
The scholarship was established years ago, as a memorial to Vincent D. Pavese, a former President and Chief Professional Officer of United Way of Passaic County.  Pavese held this office until his untimely death in January 1993.  Each year, a member of the Pavese family reviews the applications to determine which student has most closely fulfilled the requirements of the scholarship. 
 
Scholarship applicants must plan to attend an accredited college or university upon graduation from high school. Eligible applicants must also qualify for financial aid and plan to pursue a career in public service (government, social work, education, recreation, public health and welfare and law enforcement, etc.) Deadline for applications is Thursday May 10, 2018.
 
Questions and requests for applications can be directed to Caroline Schneider, Scholarship Coordinator via email: carolines@unitedwaypassaic.org
