Eight students living at Princeton Community Village, the largest multi-family affordable housing community in Princeton, have received college scholarships from state and national affordable housing organizations for the upcoming academic year.

Scholarships were awarded by the New Jersey Affordable Housing Management Association and the National Affordable Housing Management Association.

All eight students received national scholarship awards of $2,500. Only 79 awards were given out across the nation. Six students received state awards, more than 20 percent of all the state awards available.

Bruce Johnson, the program administrator for the two programs, attended a ceremony at Princeton Community Village to celebrate the scholarship winners’ accomplishments last week. Johnson praised the students for their community service activities and extracurricular activities and noted that almost all of the students also hold down part-time jobs.

“The students from here who apply and receive awards are unique,” Johnson said. “Princeton Community Village is a very special place. It is ecumenical — residents come from all races, religions, and cultures. And you receive an outstanding education in the public high school here.”

The scholarship winners are:

Alana Chmiel, Rutgers University

Jonas Daniecki, Norwich University

Mary Ebong, Rutgers University

Cindy Guzman, Rutgers University

Vanessa Guzman, Fairleigh Dickinson University

Daniel Hanna, The College of New Jersey

Joshua Hseih, Richard Stockton University

Christian James Nazario, Laboratory Institute of Merchandising

  • Congratulations to these fine young people. Best of luck in all you do.

    May I suggest you study something other than yourselves. Apart from the more obvious benefits, you’ll find it easier to get employment when you graduate.
