EDGE Scholarship for Local Students

More than $72,000 awarded to local students since 2005.

At your ERA Central Realty Group, we are more than just people who sell houses. We are there when your family grows and when the children leave the nest. We are there when your job has relocated you or when you’ve retired. We see you at school functions, public meetings, and social

events. We have families, too, and we are very proud to be a part of your community. We value the family as much as you do and understand first hand that families need to be nurtured as they grow. It is with that in mind that we are pleased to be able to offer the EDGE Scholarship from ERA Central Realty Group.

This scholarship is a way of honoring your family and the families that have supported us over the last two decades. This program annually provides multiple scholarships to college-bound students to support their undergraduate college education at an accredited school.  ERA Central Realty Group is seeking students that have the EDGE – they should be Ethical, Dedicated, Genuine, and Entrepreneurial – thus reflecting the same ideals for which our Realtor professionals are so well known.

To be eligible for the scholarship program for the upcoming academic year, college-bound students from New Jersey must apply during their senior year and have a minimum GPA of 2.5. Home-schooled students are also eligible and are encouraged to apply. The scholarships will be awarded to students who have demonstrated ethical, forward-thinking, results-oriented life and work habits and who take a proactive approach to their own lives and to the life in their communities. Applicants must be planning to pursue a bachelor’s degree. Personal interviews may be required. The children of ERA Central Realty Group associates are not eligible to apply. Scholarships will be presented at the commencement or awards ceremony of the recipient.

To be considered for one of our EDGE Scholarships, you must complete an application (3 pages and typed answers to Scholarship Questions) that must be received between January 1  and March 23, 2022. Applications are available in the high school guidance office or on our website EdgeScholarship.com.

Applications should be submitted by mail to ERA Central Realty Group, 3379 Route 206, Bordentown, NJ 08505, e-mailed to EDGE@ERAcentral.com, or dropped office in person by the deadline of March 23, 2022.

It is our honor to offer scholarships to the members of our community, our family.

Always there for you,
