Welcome to the Epilepsy Foundation of NJ
- Annual Scholarship Program
The Epilepsy Foundation of New Jersey is now accepting applications for our annual scholarship program for New Jersey high school seniors who have epilepsy. We anticipate offering at least three $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 Foundation of New Jersey, which reserves the right not to make any awards.
- New Center for Disease Control and Prevention Report
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported that the number of adults and children living with epilepsy is at an all-time high. The report shows epilepsy is not a rare condition. At least 3.4 million people in the United States live with seizures, including 470,000 children. The Epilepsy Foundation of NJ will continue to fight every day to improve the lives of the 129,000 NJ residents impacted by epilepsy and their family caregivers.
