NJPSA Student Scholarships Program

2022-2023  |  2021-2022  Awards Home


Each Student Leadership Scholarship carries a $2,000 award for the recipient’s demonstrated leadership in school activities for participation in co-curricular activities other than athletics. Winners are selected from each of the three regions of our state – north, central, and south. Eligibility is limited to districts that receive this application directly from NJPSA.

Under the direction of NJPSA Assistant Executive Director Robert Murphy, The Student Activities Committee of NJPSA reviews all applications and selects the winners. “The level of dedication and commitment these students demonstrate to their chosen activities is truly remarkable and inspirational,” said Murphy. “I have no doubt that these future leaders of society will continue to work hard and serve their communities, and NJPSA is proud to recognize their contributions in this way.”
