CCC Students Win Research & Development Council of N.J. Scholarships


Two Camden County College students were among the 19 community college students throughout the state to receive Research & Development Council of New Jersey Merit Scholarships for the 2011-12 term.


Recognized from CCC were Natalia Isaac of Blackwood and Paulina Kruszewski of Runnemede. Isaac, a graduate of Eastern Regional High School, is a biotechnology major. Kruszewski, a native of Poland, is studying biology.


Each year, the Council awards scholarships to New Jersey community college students who are enrolled in science, technology, engineering and mathematics-related fields of study. Selection criteria include grade-point average, extracurricular activities, financial need, other awards received and post-graduation career goals.


Composed of senior representatives from industry, academia and government, many from Fortune 500 companies, the nonprofit R&D Council supports research and development advancement throughout New Jersey.  The scholarships are available thanks to donations from Council members Bristol-Myers Squibb, Celgene, ExxonMobil, General Magnaplate, Montclair State University, Novartis, the PSEG Foundation, Reckitt Benckiser, Roche, Sabinsa Corp. and Stevens Institute of Technology.


This year’s scholarship winners were invited to attend a luncheon at ExxonMobil’s Annandale Research Facility to strengthen their relationship with the research and development community and to discover more about their fields of study. They also were recognized during the Council’s 32nd annual Thomas Alva Edison Patent Awards Ceremony and Reception.
