Through the partnership of the New Jersey Educators Fund with The Sharing Foundation, our family and partner funds are committed to increasing the number of lives saved through clinical advancement, donor family support, education and public awareness about the life-saving benefits of organ and tissue donation and transplantation. Scholarships are awarded to honor those who gave, pay tribute to those who received, offer hope to those who continue to wait, and remember the lives lost while waiting… for the gift of life.
Scholarship awardees must be an organ and tissue donation awareness advocate or personally affected by, or a family member of, someone personally affected by organ and tissue donation and transplantation (i.e.: organ and/or tissue donor, living donor, transplant recipient, waiting for a transplant, or died waiting for a transplant). Donation education and advocacy are the major factors in determining the scholarship award. Applicants must also be New Jersey residents and full-time High School Seniors.
