The Frank Raimondo Memorial Scholarship

Thank you for your interest in the Frank Raimondo Memorial Scholarship. In order to be eligible for this scholarship, you must attend a high school located in Bergen County, NJ with an anticipated graduation date this year and plan to continue your education at an accredited college or other institution of higher learning.


Academic achievement, personal accomplishments, financial need and response to the essay question are all important factors in our choice of a scholarship recipient, but none of these factors alone can either guarantee or disqualify an applicant.

If the late Frank Raimondo, had a motto it most likely would have been "Let's get to work." Because "work" meant more to him than simply the task at hand. Work meant "satisfying one's need to make some kind of contribution to this world we live in—even if it is only a small dent."

Frank Raimondo truly believed that all people can and should seek the work that will allow them to define themselves, shape their own lives and harness their passions and talents in service of the wider world. The purpose of this scholarship is to assist young people from Bergen County, NJ to pursue those ends.
