Committed to celebrating the achievements of established Garden State natives as well as those on their journey to success, the New Jersey Hall of Fame (NJHOF) invites Garden State high school students who will graduate in 2019 to apply for its Arete Scholarship.

Recipients of the Arete Scholarship are youth who demonstrate a sense of Jersey pride and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty. Honoring those who embody exemplary qualities such as moral character, a commitment to their community, and academic engagement, the $5,000 scholarship will be awarded to a deserving male and female student, who will be recognized at the NJHOF’s annual induction ceremony.

Arete is a concept that Plato, Socrates and Aristotle identified that encompasses virtue and excellence in the face of adversity. With that in mind, the NJHOF seeks applicants who strive to pursue their passions and go on to realize their dreams, regardless of the challenges they may experience on the path to greatness.

For high school seniors who wish to pursue the Arete Scholarship, the application asks students to answer questions about overcoming hardships, what Arete means to them, activities, community service, and more. The application can be found here.

The application deadline is March 17.
