Hemophilia Association of New Jersey

It's Scholarship time at HANJ!

February 2017

The Publicity and Education Committee of the Hemophilia Association of New Jersey is proud to once again offer scholarships to qualified individuals.

These scholarships are awarded to students who are presently enrolled in an accredited institution of academic and/or vocational higher learning or those beginning a formal program this fall. These awards are based upon financial need and/or academic ability, and are chosen by the Hemophilia Association of New Jersey's Scholarship Committee after careful review.

HANJ awards two full-time undergraduate scholarships in the amount of $1,500 per year (renewable for up to 4 years). One of the undergraduate scholarships will honor the memory of our beloved Hemophilia Association Assistant Executive Director, Julie E. Frenkel.

The Robert and Dennis Kelly Memorial Scholarship awards two additional full-time undergraduate scholarships in memory of Robert and Dennis Kelly, beloved sons of longtime HANJ Board members Elaine and Robert. Each year, the Kelly family and friends host the Kelly Brothers Scholarship picnic in order to raise the funds necessary to make these awards possible.

The graduate level scholarship has been increased to $2,000 per year and has been named the Paul D. Amitrani Scholarship in memory of our former President and honored member of our community for many years. Full-time graduate students (taking 12 credit hours per semester for two semesters) will apply for $2,000 scholarship, renewable for one additional year. Part-time graduate students (taking 6 credit hours per semester for two semesters-(fall/winter, spring/summer) will apply for a $1,000 scholarship, renewable for three additional years.

As always, the continuance of this scholarship program is dependent upon the generosity of our supporters.
