Scholarship Policy & Qualifications

It is the intent of the Trustees to honor the wishes of Evelyn Newbold to present annual scholarship awards to highly qualified students of Native American descent.  Applying students should be prepared to fully describe and substantiate their Native American heritage.

Preference will be given to those of Lenni Lenape descent, and natives of New Jersey.  Despite these preferential criteria, all persons of native descent are encouraged to apply as the award is open to all qualified applicants.

Among other items of application information to be considered, it is expected that applicants will submit a discussion touching on their involvement and activities within their native culture, the benefits they receive from and offer to their communities, and a description of intent to utilize your education to benefit your community.

Availability of scholarships will be entirely dependent upon the results of the fund’s investment portfolio, standing commitments and the volume of qualified applications.
