New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial Foundation Scholarship Program

Each year the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial Foundation awards two (2) scholarships to high school seniors from New Jersey who plan to further their education either at a college, university or trade/technical school.

Winners are notified in early May and awarded the scholarship during the Memorial Day Ceremony held at the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial. In addition to the scholarship application and proof of acceptance to a college or trade school, all applicants must submit an essay about his/her visit to the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial, located off the Garden State Parkway at exit 116 in Holmdel. Free guided tours of the Memorial are available on Saturdays at 11:00 Am and 1:00 PM, during scholarship season (February through April), to accommodate students submitting a scholarship application.
