CIT provides colleges in our local communities with grants to provide students with CIT business scholarships. These scholarships help worthy students, increase visibility in our local communities, and support recruiting efforts. The scholarships are offered to six schools in our communities:
Averett UniversityDanville Community CollegeRutgers Business SchoolSeton Hall UniversityThe College of New JerseyUniversity of North Florida
Each of these listed colleges defines the parameters for the students selected. The funds are given directly to the college, which then develops its own criteria for selecting the scholarship winners. At a minimum all recipients must have a 3.0 GPA and be majoring in business. This program continues in 2016.
The CIT Group Inc. Business Scholarship program started at one college, and expanded significantly with the support of the senior executive team, wanting to do more for local students.
