Resolution: The Board of the Association will recommend that the Princeton New England Alumni Scholarship Fund be terminated in its current form and that its assets be transferred to the University for the primary purpose of establishing the Princeton Association of New England Scholarship, which will continue the Scholarship Fund’s historical purpose of providing scholarship aid to students from the PANE region. The Board will further propose that a portion of the assets be used for the University to establish the Princeton Association of New England Community Involvement Program to support student activities with non-profit organizations in the PANE region, including those developed in partnership with PANE.
