Vincent P. Arabia Scholarship

This scholarship honors the memory and life-long achievements of Vincent P. Arabia. Mr. Arabia bravely served in World War II, where his time in the Armed Forces took him many places throughout Europe. At the age of eighteen, Vincent was injured, paralyzing him from the waist down. Rather than limiting his abilities, his injury created a strength in this intelligent man to motivate him in his daily life. His determination to live life to its fullest earned him the respect of his community. He was known for being a very generous man who would try to help those who needed it most. Although he never had any children, it was his dream to create a scholarship fund to help children reach their fullest potential in life despite their disabilities. The Vincent P. Arabia Memorial Scholarship offers a limited number of college scholarships for up to $1,500 each to benefit a physically disabled (mobility) or blind individual residing in New Jersey, with preference given to those in Burlington County. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic ability, merit and need as determined by a review committee.
