Recently released data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics on college enrollment among recent graduates revealed that, of the 2.9 million youth age 16 to 24 who graduated from high school between January and October 2017, about 1.9 million (66.7 percent) were enrolled in a college in October. The numbers for 2017-18 won’t be in for a few more months, but NVE Bank has the inside scoop on 10 commendable Bergen County high school graduates who will be counted among the newest generation of college enrollees. It is our honor to congratulate the 11th Annual NVE Bank Scholarship Awards class of 2018!
NVE Bank’s scholarship program has been offered by the Bank since 2008. On June 19, 2018, ten $1,000 scholarships were awarded to local high school seniors at a reception hosted at our Englewood headquarters. This year, seven graduating eighth-grade students from area middle schools were also selected to receive a $500 Savings Product Scholarship and joined the seniors in accepting their awards at the ceremony, where NVE President & CEO Robert Rey presented each student with his or her scholarship. Other celebrants in attendance included NVE executives, members of the bank’s board of directors, school officials, and student family members. Since the inception of the program, NVE Bank has awarded more than $165,000 to deserving scholars in Bergen County.
