Scholarship Recipients

We congratulate all recipients of the Trinitas Nursing School and Jonathan Dayton High School scholarships.


Scholarship Information

Each May scholarships will awarded to two graduating seniors from Jonathan Dayton High School in Springfield, NJ and to one student at Trinitas Nursing School in Elizabeth, NJ. Check back- we will showcase the scholarship recipients!

Dayton was chosen because the entire Phillips family went there. Frank and Sue graduated with the Class of ’65, Sharon with the Class of ’97 and Chris with the Class of ’02. Trinitas was chosen because that is the nursing school Chris was attending.

Each scholarship recipient will be chosen by the schools so please contact the guidance department at Dayton and the Dean’s office at Trinitas if you are interested in applying for a scholarship.
