Northern Essex Awards Scholarships

Submitted by on August 22, 2018 – 6:44 pm

Northern Essex Community College students were awarded approximately $175,000 in scholarships for the 2018/2019 academic year.

“Our students are deeply appreciative of the many generous individuals and organizations that make these scholarships possible,” said Jean Poth, vice president of institutional advancement. “For many of our students, a scholarship is what allows them to stay in school.”

Scholarships range from $250 to $5,000 and come from a variety of sources, including private donors, memorial donations, local businesses, and private foundations.

There were several new scholarships awarded this year; the Bethany Pestana Scholarship, the Rosemary Klueber Memorial Scholarship, the Women of NECC Scholarship in Memory of Judith C. Morrison, and the Women of NECC Scholarship in Honor of Yolanda Celluci.

“Establishing a scholarship can be a very appropriate way of honoring an individual,” said Poth. “A scholarship also is a very effective way of giving back to the community since the great majority of our students are from the Merrimack Valley.”

If you are interested in establishing a scholarship, please contact Poth at 978 556-3624 or
