Princeton Community Housing hosted a celebration at the Princeton Senior Resource Center on Wednesday, Aug. 9 to recognize students living at Princeton Community Village and Griggs Farm who received college scholarships this year from the New Jersey Affordable Housing Management Association and the National Affordable Housing Management Association.
Scholarships ranging from $1,500 to $4,500 are awarded each year to adults ranging from recent high school graduates to senior citizens who have decided to pursue college studies.
The total amount awarded to students from Princeton was $45,000. Scholarship winners are: Isaiah Nazario (College of New Jersey), Htway Min (Drew University), Luis Arriola (Culinary Institute of America), Emmanuel Guzman (Rider University), Kelly Kapatsoulia (Kean University), Bianca Orostizaga (University of Hartford), and Zin Tun (Cornell University).
Princeton Community Housing Trustee Sara Just said Princeton Community Village has won more scholarships over the years through the New Jersey Affordable Housing Management Association and the National Affordable Housing Management Association than any other affordable housing development in the country.
