The Health Research and Educational Trust of New Jersey (HRET), an affiliate of the New Jersey Hospital Association (NJHA), believes it is particularly important to encourage and enable New Jersey residents to pursue health careers, and has established a scholarship fund to assist in meeting this need. Minorities and women are encouraged to apply.

In recognition of the rising cost of higher education, NJHA in cooperation with HRET will provide grants for financial support (minimum of $2,000 each to one or more applicants) to selected students who are enrolled in the following programs:

  • Graduate study in hospital or healthcare administration, public administration, graduate study in nursing or other allied health profession
  • Junior or senior year undergraduate study in hospital or healthcare administration, public administration, nursing or other allied health profession
  • Graduate student pursuing an advanced degree to prepare to teach in nursing. This grant will assist the applicant in attaining an advanced degree to join the faculty of an accredited teaching institution.
