[May 29, 2020 – Hasbrouck Heights, NJ] Greater Bergen Realtors®, (GBR) Realtors® Care Foundation and the New Jersey Multiple Listing Service (NJMLS)  are proudly recognizing 52 High School Seniors in the Bergen and Hudson County areas with $26,000 in scholarships for their exceptional high school academic achievement. Despite the difficult circumstances that all of these young adults had to endure because of the pandemic, we are incredibly proud of their accomplishments. Students will be presented with their scholarship throughout the months of June and July.

Realtors Care Foundation 2020 President, Annekee Brahver-Keely said, “Sadly, due to the present circumstances the GBR Realtors Care Foundation cannot personally award its annual local scholarships to graduating seniors. However, RCF is proud to announce the scholarships are being mailed to deserving graduates – a total amount of $26,000! RCF acknowledges not only its individual members but wants to give a special shout out to NJMLS for its large contribution to these funds. It shows once again that Realtors do far more than selling houses!”

GBR Realtors® Care Foundation and the NJMLS award scholarship recipients based on their academic success and excellence, their desire to pursue a career in business administration and provide proof that they need tuition assistance.

NJMLS Association Executive, Michelle Perino stated “"New Jersey Multiple Listing Service was so pleased to be able to provide funding for the scholarships to high school seniors again this year. We wish all the recipients GBR has chosen the greatest success in their future endeavors."

Congratulations again to all this year’s recipients and graduates. For more information on how to apply for the scholarship, please contact Education Director, Adriana Garcia at [email protected]
