A recent article from nj.com released on June 25 titled “Gov. Christie unveils college scholarships for women and minorities in construction fields” discusses Governor Christie’s new college scholarships for women and minorities in construction fields. According to the article, Christie has launched a scholarship program to offer eligible women and minorities studying at New Jersey county colleges $2,000 in tuition support. Called the Governor’s Industry Vocation Scholarship for Women and Minorities, it was announced at the Burlington County Community College in Mount Laurel, NJ.
The article quoted Governor Christie, who said, “Opportunities for good-paying jobs all begin with access to high quality education and training, whether it’s colleges and universities, vocational or technical schools or other kinds of specialized training that prepares students for a successful future.”

Cliff Bernard, President and CEO of Bay Fastening Systems, says, “We hope that this scholarship program will help influence more women and minorities to explore the construction industry.”
