2019 Vincent D. Pavese Scholarship Applications Now Available!
November 7, 2018; Paterson, NJ:
United Way of Passaic County has announced the applications are now being accepted for the Vincent D. Pavese Scholarship. 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.)
- Applications and criteria information can be found here: 2019 Pavese Scholarship Application & Criteria. Applications are also available at the high school guidance office.
