OceanFirst Foundation remains committed to helping Jersey Shore families face the financial challenges presented by the escalating cost of higher education. This year’s Scholarship Grants are going to help cover the cost of tuition, books or other school expenses for 140 new freshman students that will arrive on campus later this month at our partner colleges and universities ~ Katherine Durante, Executive Director of OceanFirst Foundation


The OceanFirst Foundation annual scholarship reception took place this week and area college students will be the recipients of thousands of dollars in tuition aid. Students at Brookdale Community Coillege, Georgian Court University, Monmouth University and Ocean County College will have an opportunity to be awarded financial aid. The foundation awarded the schools a total of $200,000 in scholarships to be awarded to Jersey Shore students.

According to officials from the OceanFirst Foundation they have contributed in excess of $27 million to over 600 local charities and schools in Ocean, Monmouth and Middlesex counties that meet needs such as Health and Wellness, Housing, Youth Development and Education and Improving Quality of Life.

It’s a great tool for area students to receive a quality education right here at the Jersey Shore and we hope your kids will benefit from the educational boost and good luck this Fall with a brand new school year.
