YOUTH SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
Each year since 2004, NJ Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders (NJCTS) has offered the NJCTS Youth Scholarship Program to graduating New Jersey high school seniors in public or private school who have been diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome and will be attending a college, university, or trade school in the fall after their graduation from high school.
Winners are selected based upon academic achievement, community involvement, and accomplishments as an individual living with this challenging and complex neurological disorder. The amount of the prize, criteria, and selection of the winners is at the sole discretion of NJCTS, which reserves the right to determine the amount of the award and whether to award it based upon the applications.
The NJCTS Youth Scholarship Program has been made possible through generous gifts from donors. To help augment these donations in future years, NJCTS has established the NJ Walks for TS program. Founded in 2010, NJ Walks for TS currently takes place three times a year—Princeton in April, Medford Lakes in September, and Mendham in November.
Educator/Healthcare Professional of the Year
NJCTS seeks nominations from the membership for the NJCTS Educator of the Year Award AND the NJCTS Healthcare Professional of the Year Award. The awards will go to an educator and healthcare professional in New Jersey who have made a significant difference in the life of a child with Tourette Syndrome.
