Healthcare Scholarship: Health Research and Educational Trust Health Center Scholarships

Overview of the Health Research and Educational Trust (HRET) Health Center Scholarships

The Health Research and Educational Trust (HRET) Health Center Scholarships are awarded each year by the New Jersey Hospital Association. The scholarships are open to graduate students and undergraduates in their junior or senior year of study. The aim of the scholarship program is to encourage and support New Jersey Residents who are studying a health profession, with the intention of working in a hospital or other healthcare setting upon graduation.

Each scholarship is for at least $2,000, good towards the costs of tuition. One or more winners are announced each year; the exact number of recipients and the amount of the prize may vary from year to year.

In order to qualify for the scholarship, you must be a New Jersey resident and have been accepted into an undergraduate or graduate-level program in hospital or healthcare administration, public administration, nursing or an allied health profession. All undergraduate candidates must be entering their junior or senior year of school. Graduate students who are studying to teach nursing may also apply. You must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale). In addition, as the scholarship is need-based, you must demonstrate financial need for support.

Applications for the scholarship are accepted until July 1st, as of 2014. As the due date may shift slightly from year to year, it’s still worth consulting the NJHA website for up-to-date details. Scholarships are awarded by September of the same year.

As part of your application, you must submit a two-page personal essay, in which you describe in detail both your plans for the future, after graduation, and how your activities to date meet all of the scholarship criteria. You must also provide an official transcript, a FAFSA application from the previous year, and one letter of recommendation. The letter of recommendation must be written by a current academic supervisor or by the head of the program of study in which you are enrolled. All applications must be sent by postal mail to the Health Research and Education Trust of New Jersey.

While the main criteria for receiving the scholarship are academic excellence and financial need, particular weight is given to minorities and women, who are specifically “encouraged to apply.”
