• College Scholarships
The Nutley Irish is proud to run the Nutley St. Patrick’s Day Parade, but we are just as proud of all the philanthropic work that we do within the Nutley Community as well. This year, we are proud to say that we will be awarding 3 scholarships in the amount of $1,000 to 3 deserving high school seniors in Nutley. The John V. Kelly Memorial Scholarship has been awarded to Tyler Ross. The Ann P. Keating Scholarship has been awarded to Victoria Kealy and a Nutley Irish Scholarship has been awarded to Brianna Connor. Each one of these students is extremely deserving of their scholarships. We would like to thank them for their service to the community and congratulate them on their accomplishments. Best of luck to them at college in the Fall! We thank our members and our Sponsors for making these scholarships possible through their generous donations throughout the year.
