Keeping in step with mentoring young people, Adele Sammarco supports the New Jersey Association of REALTORS’ Educational Foundation (NJAREF), which distributes scholarship funds each year. In 2012, the organization handed out 40 awards totaling $57,000. Each student received between $1,000 and $2,500 to put toward their collegiate studies.
NJAREF encourages applications from its members and relatives of members, and recipients can be college-aged students as well as those already in the workforce. The group considers applicants’ community contributions, academic records, financial needs, and interest in real estate. Those awarded scholarships may pursue their undergraduate or graduate educations, but they must seek to work in the real estate field.
