Scholarship News and Appeal
NJALL annually awards two scholarships to worthy graduates of New Jersey's adult literacy programs to support their goals in higher education and to help them be better prepared workers, parents and citizens, better prepared workers, parents and citizens.
Our scholarships provide $1,000 a semester for full-time students and are entirely supported by individual donations. NJALL pays all administrative costs for this program, so all contributions go directly to our scholarship
recipients. Many of the students also work full time jobs, support families, and face economic challenges in their struggle to improve their lives and the lives of their families.
This year we are excited to announce that we are expanding our scholarship program to include $500 Book Grants. Students can use these one-time grants for books, technology, or other costs to support their transition to college. We are hoping to award 5 Book Grants in 2023 in
addition to 2 full scholarship awards.
We are proud to provide this financial support to adult literacy program graduates, who face so many barriers to attaining their college degrees. But beyond the financial support, our amazing scholarship committee provides advice, encouragement, and mentorship to the award recipients
throughout their college careers. Year after year as we celebrate our new recipients, past scholarship winners come back to speak about how much it meant to them to know that this committee, NJALL, and our donors believed in them.
