Galloway, N.J. -  For the fifth year, the OceanFirst Foundation has contributed to the Stockton University Foundation scholarship fund, presenting $40,000 to Stockton President Harvey Kesselman for the 2021-22 academic year.

“This really makes a difference to our students,” Kesselman said. “I know from the letters we receive from them how grateful they are for the support.  OceanFirst is one of our most significant donors and I appreciate their commitment to the students in this region.”

OceanFirst Bank Southern Region President Vincent D’Alessandro said he has mentored a student, Alisha Romer, who previously received the scholarship and is going to join the company after graduation.

“She represents the talent that is here at Stockton,” D’Alessandro said.

To date, the OceanFirst Foundation has contributed $240,000, which has provided 96 students with $2,500 scholarships.
