Bloomfield College, Hillside Announce Scholarship Partnership

Bloomfield College and Hillside

On Friday, August 24, the Mayor of Hillside and the Administration of Bloomfield College kicked off the Township of Hillside and Bloomfield College Scholarship Program. Each year it will provide four scholarship levels to the students of Hillside who plan to enroll at Bloomfield College ranging from 33% tuition coverage to 80%.

“It is my honor, as Mayor of Hillside, to be in partnership with such great people and a wonderful institution like Bloomfield College,” said Mayor Dahlia Vertreese.

President Levao, the College's vice presidents, and Mayor Vertreese were joined by Hillside's first recipient of the scholarship, by members of both communities, as well as alumni from the College, to celebrate this partnership, which was first announced in June.

Denilson Vincent of Hillside High School, who is now a freshman at Bloomfield College, received a special surprise at his High School Graduation when Mayor Vertreese presented him with a $10,000 per year scholarship to attend Bloomfield College.

“Getting this scholarship was a dream come true,” said Vincent.

A former educator and school board member, Vertreese has been working with the Bloomfield College leadership team, specifically Richard Levao, President, and Dr. Patrick Lamy, Vice President of Student Affairs, since the beginning of her administration to ensure that the scholarship program could begin with the graduating class of 2018.

“Bloomfield College has been around for 150 years, and our mission has remained the same,” said President Levao. “What we hope to train are people who are committed to social justice, financial justice, and opportunity and access to education for people of all backgrounds. We are delighted to be here today.”
