Each year since 2004, NJ Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders (NJCTS) has offered the NJCTS Youth Scholarship Program to graduating New Jersey high school seniors in public or private school who have been diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome and will be attending a college, university, or trade school in the fall after their graduation from high school.

Winners are selected based upon academic achievement, community involvement, and accomplishments as an individual living with this challenging and complex neurological disorder. The amount of the prize, criteria, and selection of the winners is at the sole discretion of NJCTS, which reserves the right to determine the amount of the award and whether to award it based upon the applications.

The NJCTS Youth Scholarship Program has been made possible through generous gifts from donors. Those interested in donating specifically to the scholarship may do so by designating NJCTS Scholarship Fund on their checks and forwarding the contribution to: NJ Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders, Inc., 50 Division St. Ste. 205 Somerville, NJ 08876.

To help augment these donations, NJCTS has established the NJ Walks for TS program.
