Epilepsy Services of New Jersey is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for our annual scholarship program for New Jersey high school seniors who have epilepsy. We anticipate offering at least two $1,000 scholarships this year.
New Jersey high school seniors with epilepsy who plan to attend a college or university are eligible. Academic achievement, participation in activities and financial need will be considered. The extent of a student’s disability(s) will be taken into account as well, so that s/he need not be near the top of her/his class to qualify. Final awards will be made by the Epilepsy Services of New Jersey, which reserves the right not to make any awards.

Documents needed for application:

  • Copy of school transcript
  • Letter verifying admission to college, university; if unavailable, please include the addresses and telephone numbers of the college admissions office to which you have applied
  • Statement of diagnosis from a physician, indicating the type and severity of your seizures (and other disabilities, if applicable)
  • Two letters of recommendations from any of the following: teacher, coach, guidance counselor, principal, employer, clergy
  • Copy of the 2018 parents’ Federal Income Tax Return; if unavailable, please include a copy of parents’ 2017 Federal Income Tax Return

Deadline Extension! All documents must be received by the Epilepsy Services of New Jersey by Friday, May 10, 2019 in order for your application to be reviewed. Please use separate sheets to complete the written part of this application.
