United Way of Passaic County has announced that applications are still available for the Vincent D. Pavese Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded annually to a Passaic County high school senior who has exhibited a commitment to community service and plans to pursue a career in public service such as government, social work, health care, education.
The scholarship was established 21 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 special committee 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 are available on United Way of Passaic County’s web site (www.unitedwaypassaic.org) and at high school guidance offices. Deadline for applications is Thursday May 1, 2014.
Applications and information regarding the application process are available on the United Way’s Website: www.unitedwaypassaic.org Questions and requests for applications can be directed to Caroline Schneider, Scholarship Coordinator, via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
