NHRHS Scholarship Fund
NHRHS Scholarship Fund Inc. is a need-based scholarship offered to graduating seniors and alumni.
The NHRHS Scholarship Fund Inc. began in 1990 with the death of Allendale resident, Ruth Jakobi. Her late husband, Gerard Jakobi, initiated a trust to take care of his wife and, upon her death, the remainder of their estate was given in trust to Northern Highlands to assist students who want to go to college, but have significant financial needs. This trust also provided for a committee to be established to oversee the scholarship. Over the years, the committee has solicited Highlands' families, local businesses, and civic groups to add additional monies to the amount provided by the Jakobi trust.
