New Jersey Hall of Fame/NJHOF Arête Scholarship Award

The New Jersey Hall of Fame is proud to announce the renewal of the Arete Scholarship Fund. The Arête Scholarships will be awarded to a deserving male and female student graduating in 2017 from a New Jersey high school. Each recipient will receive a $5,000 scholarship from the New Jersey Hall of Fame (NJHOF). Arête is a concept that Plato referred to more than 3,000 years ago that refers to the act of actualizing one's highest sense of self. The term Arête essentially means that the individual should strive to pursue their passions in life, and realize their dreams regardless of their circumstances or the adversities that they are likely to face on the path to greatness. The successful applicants will embody the meaning of Arête, and will distinguish themselves as New Jerseyans who are on their way to realizing their dreams. The NJHOF Arête Scholarship Award will be one of the highest honors that the NJHOF and the State of N.J. can bestow upon a student, and each student will be recognized at the NJHOF's annual induction ceremony! The recipients of the Arête scholarship are young people who demonstrate that sense of Jersey pride and that willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty. The successful applicants must demonstrate the qualities such as academic engagement, moral character, and a commitment to their community. These recipients do not necessarily have to be at the very top of their school class from an academic standpoint, but should demonstrate a focus in school and life, and have a well thought out plan on how they intend to realize their highest sense of self: their Arête.
