Through its private, charitable foundation, Our Family for Families First, Corvias Group has presented $500,000 worth of college scholarships to 10 students of military families stationed throughout the country.
During the last eight years, the scholarships, which support military families in the pursuit of higher education, have totaled more than $4.5 million and have been presented to dozens of graduates on the basis of merit and need.
“The caliber of students applying for our scholarships is exceptional,” said Maria Montalvo, foundation executive director. “All of the applicants are hard-working students who are active in their schools and communities and more than deserving of a college scholarship. The selection process is difficult but we look forward to welcoming these new scholars into our foundation family.”
The program was started in 2006 by Corvias Group CEO John Picerne as a way to provide recurring financial assistance during each student’s four years of study, in addition to a support network.
