HESAA New Jersey World Trade Center Scholarship

The New Jersey World Trade Center Scholarship has been established to aid the dependent children and surviving spouses of New Jersey residents who were killed in the terrorist attacks against the United States on September 11, 2001, or who died as a result of injuries received in the attacks, or who are missing and officially presumed dead as a direct result of the attacks. Those incurring the full-time cost of attendance at an eligible institution, having lost the financial resources of a parent or spouse, are deemed to have financial need. Qualifying individuals will receive up to $6,500 per academic year, not to exceed the actual tuition, fees, room and board charged. Scholarship amounts may also change as a result of changes in program funding and student’s other available financial assistance. Scholarships will apply to both in-state andout-of-state institutions.

Applications are due on October 1 for Fall and Spring terms and March 1 for Spring term only.
