In special tribute, the family of the late Stephanie J. Stewart has formed a scholarship in her memory to assist a deserving New Brunswick student with his/her pursuit for a college education.


During her lifetime, Stephanie Stewart was a staunch advocate for what was right and fair, always cheered for the “underdog” and had a love for sports, which she passed onto her children. She loved to learn (both formally and informally), and was a constant supporter of community grass roots efforts to exact change.


The Stephanie J. Stewart Memorial Scholarship is offering a $1,000.00 award to a New Brunswick High School or New Brunswick Health Sciences Technology High School senior who will be attending an accredited four year college or university in the fall 2016, and has demonstrated a “turnaround” during their high school career. The scholarship is also based on his/her financial need, community service and participation/interest in sports.


The application and all documents for the Stephanie J. Stewart Memorial Scholarship must be completed and submitted by Monday, May 2, 2016.


The recipient of the Stephanie J. Stewart Memorial Scholarship will be recognized at the New Brunswick Education Foundation’s (NBEF) Tenth Anniversary Celebration on Friday, June 17, 2016 at The Pines Manor, 2085 Route 27 in Edison, NJ. The actual scholarship award, with a written designation for use, will be forwarded on behalf of the recipient directly to the college or university that he/she will attend.
