2022 Scholarship Information - May 24, 2022-Dinner Postponed UPDATE: SCHOLARSHIP DINNER TO BE HELD NOVEMBER 10TH

Dear CRTNJ Members and Supporters:  

UPDATE:  THE SCHOLARSHIP DINNER WILL BE HELD ON NOVEMBER 10, 2022 AT THE METUCHEN GOLF AND COUNTRY CLUB IN EDISON, NJ.  OUR EVENT WILL BEGIN AT 6 PM

After two years of Covid shutdowns, we are thrilled to announce that the Construction Roundtable of New Jersey will be holding its Annual Scholarship Fundraiser Dinner on Tuesday, May 24, 2022.  As in the past, this event will take place at Johnson & Johnson’s World Headquarters in New Brunswick enabled by J&J’s generous agreement to host once again.

The last two Covid years have been an unprecedented and unwelcome experience for everyone.  Many organizations cancelled events and some were unable to perform their functions or, in some cases, have even ceased to exist. But during this awful period the CRTNJ was able to modify many programs and most pointedly, maintain our scholarship program.  In fact, the last two years we were able to award four (4) scholarships in 2020 and seven (7) scholarships in 2021…all while being unable to hold our Scholarship Fundraiser Dinner.  We need not remind you that it is only through your support and generosity have we been able to do so. 

So, once again, we are counting on your support in raising funds that will benefit students planning to continue their studies at a four-year institution in New Jersey entering in construction-related fields including Engineering, Design, Architecture or Construction Management.  But this year we look forward to greeting everyone in person at our annual dinner.

As we have done in recent years, for those willing to donate the full scholarship stipend of $5,000, we will attach your name to the student as their sole sponsor for the student’s two scholarship years.  For a donation of $2,500, we will attach your name to an individual student jointly with another $2,500 sponsor to round out the $5,000 scholarship for the student’s scholarship two years.  Of course, we will enthusiastically accept donations at any level, as outlined below.

  1. “Buy” a Table of 8 for the Scholarship Fundraiser Dinner
  2. Attend the Scholarship Fundraiser Dinner
  3. Make a Sponsorship Donation of either $5,000 or $2,500 as noted above
  4. Make a Donation at any Level

We have an interesting and exciting evening planned that we think you will enjoy beginning with our open-bar cocktail hour allowing plenty of time to network with colleagues, both owner and associate members…something we have been unable to enjoy consistently over the last two years.  If you’ve been to any of our previous dinners, we’re sure you’ll remember how pleasant and worthwhile this time spent is and we are so pleased to be able to renew the experience.

Once again, we have a renowned Keynote Speaker.  This year it is Dr. Joel Bloom, President of NJIT.  Dr. Bloom has been a tremendous supporter of our scholarship program over the years and we look forward to having him join us at our dinner this year. The evening will be topped off with a student speaker who we are certain will provide a poignant description of how much the scholarship has helped them achieve their educational goals.

We look forward to seeing you and your spouses, friends and guests on May 24th.  However, if you are unable to attend, we hope you will still show your support by giving a donation.  Registration and donation forms will be uploaded shortly.

We know that while in school and studying hard, tuition and expenses are difficult for students, especially in our current environment. The cause is an important one that gives us all an opportunity to give back to our community and promote the growth of our industry and help provide our industry’s future leaders.

Thank you in advance for your support.

Sincerely,

Daniel J. Kovach, PSEG, Chairman, Construction Roundtable of New Jersey

Michael N. Posner, Chairman, Scholarship Committee, Construction Roundtable of New Jersey
