Welcome to the Epilepsy Foundation of NJ

What’s New

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.

Scholarship Applications and supporting documents are due by May 1, 2015. Should you have any questions, please contact Andrea Racioppi at (800)336-5843 or by email at aracioppi@efnj.com.
