Provident Bank Foundation Announces Signature Grant for Education

Monday, August 12, 2019

The Provident Bank Foundation (PBF) has announced Thomas Edison State University (TESU) in Trenton, NJ, as the recipient of the Foundation’s $100,000 Signature Grant for 2019 in the Education funding priority area.

TESU was selected to receive this Signature Grant for its distance-learning curriculum built on community engaged service learning and best practices. A first of its kind, the program promotes experiential learning as TESU’s non-traditional and distance-learning adult students support New Jersey non-profit organizations in the form of 12-week Capstone Projects.

“It is very important to assist educational initiatives that empower adults to attain their career goals and build a strong and competitive local workforce,” said Jane Kurek, Executive Director, The Provident Bank Foundation. “TESU has structured a program to prepare students to lead and create positive change in community-based organizations and develop effective public service partnerships with non-profits.”
