The New Jersey Hall of Fame is proud to announce the renewal of the Arete Scholarship Fund. The Arête Scholarships will be awarded to a deserving male and female student graduating in 2019 from a New Jersey high school. Each recipient will receive a $5,000 scholarship from the New Jersey Hall of Fame (NJHOF).

Arête is a concept that Plato, Socrates, and Aristotle referred to more than 3,000 years ago that refers to the act of actualizing one’s highest sense of self with a moral excellence of character. The term Arête essentially means that the individual should strive to pursue their passions in life, and realize their dreams regardless of their circumstances or the adversities that they are likely to face on the path to greatness.

The successful applicants will embody the meaning of Arête and will distinguish themselves as New Jerseyans who are on their way to realizing their dreams. The NJHOF Arête Scholarship Award will be one of the highest honors that the NJHOF & the State of N.J. can bestow upon a student, and each student will be recognized at the NJHOF’s annual induction ceremony!
