The Battleship New Jersey hosts many private and public events on the ship.
Check out what public events are coming up on our calendar.
The 11th annual Camden Residents Scholarship Awards Dinner will take place in the Officers’ Wardroom on Thursday, June 8 at 6pm. This dinner will award students who reside in Camden with $2000 scholarships — an additional $1000 from past scholarship awards — to be used for their education as they move forward in their academic career.
The Battleship has awarded 100 Camden students a total of $100,000 in scholarships over the past 10 years. As we move into our next decade of scholarships, the Battleship has increased the award per student to $2000 to further help them with their educational expenses.
The Battleship has recently contacted Camden area schools regarding participating in this program. Teachers from the schools identified students moving forward in their academic career for the Battleship scholarship. One student from ten Camden-area high schools and secondary schools will receive the scholarship, which will be awarded on the Battleship on June 15.
The winning students and the schools that there are from are:
- Camden Academy Charter: Michelle Leon
- Camden High: Deonna Fooks-Benbow
- Camden Catholic High: Jesus Colin
- LEAP Academy: Dwan Tokley
- Brimm Medical Arts: Taniya Aviles
