Most of us will never forget the terrible events which unfolded in New York City, Washington, D.C. and Shanksville, PA on September 11, 2001. For those in the financial services community, the date will forever serve as a reminder of the colleagues, friends, and relatives that were lost in the terror attacks. Over time, the shock felt that day has evolved into a firm resolve to rebuild both New York and the spirit of our nation.
Needham & Company established the Needham September 11th Scholarship Fund shortly after the tragedy. Designed to benefit the children and dependents of the victims who lost their lives, the purpose of the fund is to ensure that the victims’ children are provided with an opportunity for a private secondary and/or college-level education.
Awarding of funds is based upon a combination of the applicant’s financial need, scholastic abilities, and community/civic involvement. To be considered for an award, an applicant must have a current cumulative GPA of 2.50 or equivalent, and household pre-September 11th adjusted gross income must be less than $125,000. Applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis in an objective, non-discriminatory manner.
