In 2013, Governor Chris Christie announced the Governor’s Industry Vocations Scholarship (NJ-GIVS), which pays up to $2,000 per year or up to the cost of tuition, less any federal, state, or institutional aid in an eligible certificate or degree program at one of New Jersey’s eligible institutions. The scholarship is funded by the SDA and administered in partnership with HESAA. The award benefits women and minority students pursuing a certificate or degree program in a construction-related field.
Funding is limited and awards will be made on a first-come, first-served basis. To receive an award you must meet all eligibility requirements.
