Peer Helper Scholarship

Developed in 1985, the Peer Helper Scholarship seeks to reward up to 12 students of high quality and scholarship who work as resource personnel with NJC Student Success Center. At the completion of required training phases, the cash stipend progressively increases and may renew for the student’s sophomore year upon a positive recommendation by the staff. Applications are available at the beginning of each school year in the Student Success Center. Three letters of recommendation, a personal statement of goals and/or experience, proof of academic achievement and a personal interview are also required. Selection is made shortly after the beginning of fall semester.
