The NJLBA is now accepting applications for the 2016 Wellhofer Scholarship Foundation. The scholarships are reserved for the sons, daughters and grandchildren of present dues-paying NJLBA members. Also eligible are the sons, daughters and grandchildren of retired members who had paid their dues for at least five full years prior to their retirement.
Though there are limited guidelines, the applications are scored on a point system that includes the high school cumulative grade average, rank in class, activities and counselor’s recommendations. The winners are selected from an anonymous list presented to the Wellhofer Committee.
Two (2) scholarships in the amount of $2,500 are offered to a matriculated, full time undergraduate student attending any recognized degree granting university in the United States. Scholarship applications are due April 30th, 2016 and should be sent to the NJLBA office in Trenton. For instruction and an application visit the NJLBA website at www.njlba.org or contact the Association at 609-394-6730 for an application.
The grant recipients will be notified in writing and the winners will also be announced at the Wellhofer Scholarship Picnic. The picnic will be held this year on Wednesday June 29th, 2016 from 2:00pm to 7:00pm at the Oak Tree Lodge, 1412 Schoolhouse Road, Wall Township, NJ. We look forward to seeing everyone at the picnic again this year.
