CHILDREN'S SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS
Each year, through the generosity of its donors, New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders, Inc. presents NJCTS Children’s Scholarship awards to resident New Jersey high school seniors (private or public), who are diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome and will be attending a college or trade school in the fall.
The recipients are chosen on the basis of academic record, recommendations, an essay and if appropriate talents as demonstrated via audiotape, compact disc, videotape or digital video disc. The purpose of the award is to both recognize a student with TS who has attained noteworthy accomplishments despite the disorder and to serve as encouragement for furthering his or her education or training.
Applications for 2013 are now closed. Please check back in January of 2014 for the 2014 application..

To be considered for an award, a written essay describing the educator and/or health professional's contribution must be submitted.
