To celebrate its 95th anniversary, the Bergen County section of the National Council of Jewish Women is giving a $9,500 scholarship to a Jewish woman who is pursuing a career in the public arena. It would be used toward tuition in a graduate program for public administration, social work, or other applicable public policy fields.

The applicant should be a student seeking a career in community service. Her primary residence is in New Jersey, and she should have completed co-curricular experience in public policy or social services. She should be enrolled or have been accepted in an accredited graduate program.

For more information or for an application, go to www.ncjwbcs.org or email office@ncjwbcs.org. The application deadline is June 30.

NCJW encourages organizations in New Jersey to assist in reaching appropriate candidates by circulating this information within their communities.
