WVU Southern New Jersey Alumni Chapter Scholarship Endowment Fundraising Drive

In February 2014, a group of WVU alumni, parents and friends of WVU created the WVU Southern NJ Alumni Chapter to serve the growing number of students, parents and alumni living in Southern NJ. One of our long-term goals is to establish a permanently-endowed scholarship fund for WVU undergraduate students from Southern NJ. Through the efforts of WVU Foundation, Inc., we are pleased to announce the creation of the Southern New Jersey Alumni Chapter Scholarship, a tax-deductible endowed scholarship fund.

Funding of Endowment (Completed)

In May, 2018 we finished raising the required $25,000 minimum to fully endowed our scholarship, which will provide in perpetuity, at least one annual scholarship for a WVU student from Southern New Jersey. As of the end of 9/30/2018 the Chapter endowment fund had a value of $30,500.

Fundraising Details

This endowment will provide scholarships for undergraduate students enrolled at West Virginia University who have graduated from a Southern NJ High School in any of the following counties:

Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, Mercer and Salem Counties.

The recipient(s) will be determined by the WVU Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships and will be awarded in the name of the Southern New Jersey Alumni Chapter Scholarship.  Upon authorization for the recipient(s), we will publicly acknowledge the name of the recipient(s).
