NJ Sharing Network Foundation Scholarship Application for 2021-2022

Our Foundation is pleased to announce the availability of multiple scholarships for the 2021-2022 academic year, made possible by the Betsy Niles Scholarship Fund, the Missy’s Miracle Scholarship Fund, and the Hearts for Emma Partner Fund.

Betsy Niles Scholarship Fund:
The Betsy Niles Scholarship is offered in memory of Betsy Niles, a children’s book editor and lifelong resident of Montclair. Betsy died in 2011 and, in keeping with her tradition of lifelong giving, her organs were donated. Betsy was known for always giving the perfect gift for every occasion. Her last gift was the greatest gift of all, the gift of life.

Missy’s Miracle Scholarship Fund:
The Missy’s Miracle Scholarship Fund was created in celebration of the 30th Anniversary of Missy Rodriguez’s liver transplant. The program directly supports scholarships to high schoolstudents.

Hearts for Emma Partner Fund:
The Hearts for Emma Partner Fund was created to directly support The Hero Act through the production and distribution of educational materials and related programs teaching the importance of organ and tissue donation and transplantation.

About the Scholarships:
Scholarship awardees must be an organ and tissue donation awareness advocate or personally affected by, or a family member of, someone personally affected by organ and tissue donation and transplantation (i.e.: organ and/or tissue donor, living donor, transplant recipient, waiting for a transplant, or died waiting for a transplant). Donation education and advocacy are the major factors in determining the scholarship award.

Through their partnership with our foundation, the Missy’s Miracle Fund, Betsy Niles Fund and Hearts for Emma Fund are committed to increasing the number of lives saved through innovative transplant research, donor family support, education and public awareness about the life-saving benefits of organ and tissue donation and transplantation. Scholarships are awarded to honor those who gave, pay tribute to those who received, offer hope to those who continue to wait, and remember the lives lost while waiting… for the gift of life.
