LAWRENCEVILLE, NJ — Partner Edward Kahn continues his collaboration with Mercer County Community College (MCCC) through substantial scholarship grants funded by the Albert B. Kahn Foundation. This foundation, established in memory of his father Albert B. Kahn—who graduated from Trenton Central High School (TCHS) in 1918 and believed strongly that education was the gateway to opportunity—aims to support TCHS graduates pursuing higher education. Reflecting the family’s deep roots in the community, all four of Albert’s children also attended TCHS, maintaining their family’s longstanding connection to the school.

Each year, approximately ten deserving students matriculating at MCCC from TCHS are selected to receive up to $4,000 in annual grants. These grants cover tuition and other related expenses, alleviating the financial burden on students and their families.

The scholarship recipients are chosen through a careful selection process involving the principal, vice-principal, guidance counselors, and teachers at TCHS. This process ensures that the grants benefit students who demonstrate academic excellence, leadership, and notable achievements in athletics or the arts.

At a recent award ceremony at MCCC, the achievements of this year’s scholarship recipients were celebrated, highlighting two standout students set to attend Princeton University next year, among others planning to further their education or enter the workforce.

Szaferman Lakind is proud of Partner Edward Kahn’s role in this important initiative and values the collective commitment of all partners to fostering educational opportunities. These initiatives are vital for developing future leaders and enhancing the prosperity of the wider area.
