BERKELEY COLLEGE FOUNDATION AWARDS SCHOLARSHIPS TO RECIPIENTS AND ALUMNI AT THE 2020-2021 VIRTUAL SCHOLARSHIP DINNER

The Berkeley College Foundation, established in 2015, has awarded 18 student scholarships for tuition aid that total more than $40,000, started a Food Pantry at the Newark campus for all students, and provided discounted MetroCards for eligible Berkeley College students in New York City.

The Berkeley College Foundation will celebrate the achievements of nine scholarship recipients during a virtual scholarship dinner on October 29, 2020.

The Berkeley College Foundation scholarship award program began in 2018 when eight students received the awards that would help them meet the expense of tuition. In 2019, another 10 scholarships were awarded, for a total of $40,000 in tuition aid. As long as the student maintains eligibility, the $1,000 scholarship award per semester remains in effect for the duration of the student’s program. In addition, contributions from the Berkeley College Foundation helped to establish a Food Pantry at the Newark, NJ campus for all students, and helped provide discounted MetroCards for eligible students to meet their transportation costs in New York City.

The Berkeley College Foundation Scholarship recipients being honored at the event are:

  • Mobolaji Adigun-Koonce, Newark Campus
  • Tasleemah Al-Qadir, Newark Campus
  • Nayeli Carretto, Newark Campus
  • Perla Guzman, Woodland Park Campus
