More than a dozen Georgian Court University students will benefit from $40,000 in scholarship funds donated by the OceanFirst Foundation of Toms River. The foundation’s gift to the students of GCU highlights the organization’s emphasis on the value of education, which is one of their main priorities.
“With this gift, the OceanFirst Foundation continues its tradition of providing 16 Georgian Court students with opportunities for access,” said Matt Manfra, GCU’s vice president for institutional advancement. “We are grateful for the many years of OceanFirst support—amounting to more than $1 million—to directly benefit Georgian Court students.”
As a longtime supporter of Georgian Court, OceanFirst received GCU’s Corporate Service Award at the university’s 2021 Scholarship and Golf Classic. As of this year, OceanFirst Bank and OceanFirst Foundation’s generosity to GCU totals over $1.1 million in grants for scholarships and university programs. More than half of the funding has been awarded directly to deserving students from Ocean and Monmouth counties.
