N.J. Charities: Jan Ai Scholarship FDN

Jan-Ai Scholarship Fund

The Jan-Ai scholarship fund commemorates the life and untimely death of young writer, poet and photographer, Jennifer Cakert (born March 20, 1980, died June 22, 2006). It provides financial support through scholarships, mini grants, and simple on-the-spot cash awards as incentive for other young artists ”especially those constrained by financial or other barriers” to pursue their dreams in their creative fields, offering formal recognition of a young individual's worthwhile goals. In its pursuit of realizing the dreams of others, it will honor the path Jennifer created and will continue her lifelong artistic journey.
