2017 Princeton Committee Scholarship Luncheon
Established 17 years ago, the Princeton Committee of UNCF is an all-volunteer committee that raises funds to provide assistance to deserving, bright and talented young men and women from the Mercer, Somerset and Middlesex counties to ensure their access to higher education that otherwise might not be available or limited due to financial constraints. Our committee is unique, as we not only provide a four-year, recurring scholarship to the students selected, but each member also mentors and coaches scholars throughout their four-year college experience. The commitment by the committee is to provide renewable scholarships to students who maintain excellent academic performance, and each recipient is required to maintain a 3.0 or better GPA.
The committee has granted more than $300,000 in four-year, recurring scholarships to 19 students, and one-time emergency support to one student for a total of 20 students. To date, the committee has 15 scholarship graduates; 10 are employed and five are in graduate school. There are four rising juniors currently in the pipeline.
Proceeds from this event will provide scholarships for qualifying students from Mercer, Somerset and Middlesex counties.
Individual tickets are $75.
