NJEA and the New Jersey Hall of Fame (NJHOF) announce the renewal of the Arête Scholarship, which annually grants a $5,000 scholarship to a male and a female New Jersey high school graduate. The recipients are recognized at the annual New Jersey Hall of Fame’s induction ceremony. Scholarship applications are due on March 17, 2018.

The term “Arête” comes from Plato and refers to “the realization of one’s highest sense of self.” The scholarship is given to help a young man and women realize their own pathway to greatness. Applicants must demonstrate academic engagement, character and a commitment to their community.

2017 Arête scholarship winners Christina Batista and John Davern, both from Manchester Township High School, were honored at this year’s Hall of Fame Red Carpet Induction Ceremony alongside the distinguished inductees.

To apply for the Arête Scholarship, direct students and their families to njhalloffame.org/arete-application.
