NJMEP and Team Eagle Foundation have selected nine Award Winners from the 31 Applications for the 2017 Bob Beaman ‘B-Involved’ Scholarships.
NJMEP is a not-for-profit company that works with New Jersey’s manufacturers to help them become more efficient, profitable and globally competitive. The LEDR Program (www.ledr-tef.org) is a real-world Young Adult Mentoring Effort that recently completed its sixth year of operation, and has a focus on Post-Secondary Education, Government, Service, Business & STEM. The program accepts statewide nominations for those NJ Residents between 15 to 20 years of age, male & female that attend at no-cost – and – now has 218 Alumni from 19 out of 21 NJ Counties. All Alumni, Staff, Boy & Girl Scouts that have supported the program can apply annually for Scholarships that honor Bob Beaman – a long-time Boy Scout Volunteer and a LEDR Founding Board Member who passed away in 2015. NJMEP supports this endeavor through its Manufacturing Cares initiative.

- Brian Kim: $1,500

Coupled with NJMEP’s Anthony DeSantis Service to America Scholarships that were awarded at Manufacturing Day, these educational Scholarships and Grants have just exceeded $70,000.
The annual Jersey Guys Golf Outing (held in late July) provides significant financial support for the two Scholarships as 100 percent of all proceeds go directly to them.
