Galloway, N.J. –The Hollander Memorial Foundation will offer $50,000 in scholarships for the coming year to undergraduate and graduate students who are enrolled full-time in Stockton University’s School of Health Science pre-licensure programs, which include Nursing, Communication Disorders, Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy.

Current students in those programs in the School of Health Sciences may apply for funding provided by the Hollander scholarship fund. Students who meet the eligibility criteria will be identified by the School of Health Sciences and invited to apply.

To be eligible, a candidate must be a resident of southern New Jersey, with a minimum GPA of 3.0 and be involved in ethical, leadership and extracurricular activities in Stockton's Health Science programs or community. Ten students will each receive $5,000 toward tuition and fees as awarded by faculty judges.

The Hollander Memorial Foundation was formed to perpetuate the memory and the spirit of Pauline and Adelaide Hollander by awarding educational scholarships to local students with ties to the community who are pursuing a degree in nursing or other health science professions. The fund is overseen by the Bacharach Institute for Rehabilitation’s Board Chairman Philip J. Perskie, Vice Chairman Roy Goldberg and CEO Richard Kathrins.

The Hollander Memorial Foundation is associated with the Bacharach Institute for Rehabilitation, an advanced inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation hospital located in Galloway, with additional satellite offices throughout southern New Jersey.
