Scholarship Information

Dear Fellow HFMA Members:

Each year the New Jersey Chapter awards certain education scholarships to a member, member's spouse or member's dependent based on defined criteria. I am pleased to invite you to apply for this years' 2017 HFMA Scholarship. The New Jersey Chapter of HFMA will be offering 3 scholarships which will be at a minimum of one thousand dollars each. You, your spouse or dependent may be eligible for the scholarship if you meet the following criteria:

      • Member, in good standing, of the New Jersey Chapter for the last two years.
      • Spouse or dependent of a member, in good standing, of the New Jersey Chapter, for the last two years.
      • Enrolled in an accredited college, university, nursing school or other allied health professional school.

Preference will be given to applicants pursuing degrees in finance, accounting, healthcare administration or a healthcare related field of study. Tuition not paid by an employer or other scholarship will qualify for the HFMA scholarship.

We make our selection based on merit, academic achievement, civic and professional activities, course of study and content of your application and essay. We do not use income in our selection process. To apply, please submit a completed Scholarship Application no later than April 1, 2017. Members of the Chapter's Board of Directors, Officers and Advisory Council and their spouses or dependents are not eligible for scholarships.

We will announce the recipients of the 2017 NJ HFMA Scholarship at our bi-monthly meeting on June 13, 2017. If you have any questions or wish to receive additional applications, please contact me at 848-467-3858 or Laura Hess at njhfma@aol.com.
