2023-2024 Scholarship Recipients:
Hans Drexler Rivero-Stevens
Dear CRTNJ Members and Supporters:
The Construction Roundtable of New Jersey will be holding its Annual Scholarship Fundraiser Dinner on Thursday, April 25th at 6 PM. The event will take place at Metuchen Golf & Country Club, 244 Plainfield Road, Edison, New Jersey.
Last year, we were able to award nine (9) scholarships for academic year 2023-2024. 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 beginning with the academic year 2024-2025.
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.
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.
Once again, we will have a renowned Keynote Speaker and top off the night 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 June 8th. However, if you are unable to attend, we hope you will still show your support by giving a donation. We have attached registration and donation forms.
We know that while in school and studying hard, tuition and expenses are difficult for students. The CRTNJ Scholarship is an important fundraiser 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.
