The Tewksbury Education Foundation will continue in its tradition of supporting the educational aspirations of Tewksbury students by offering a new scholarship. Jean Frankel, a founding member of the TEF, and her husband, Gregg, have extended their generous support of Tewksbury Township students with the creation of the TEF Jean Frankel Founders Award. The TEF has established the following criteria for the scholarship:
• This yearly scholarship will be awarded to one graduating 8th grade student in the amount of $2,500. Please note that children of current TEF Board Members and those within 4 years of serving on the board are not ineligible.
• The scholarship will be awarded to one student who is dedicated to their growth as a whole person including dedication to academics, devotion to volunteerism, and participation in extra-curricular activities such as the arts, sports, scouts, or other interests.
• This scholarship will be awarded to the student upon their graduation from high school to help with their post-secondary education.
The TEF is pleased to announce that, through the Frankel Foundation, Jean and Gregg Frankel have generously committed to funding this scholarship for the next 20 years.
