The Three-Point Scholarship Application

 

One $3,000 scholarship to a college-bound senior from Cape May County who demonstrates excellence in academics, athletics, and service. 
 

The “Three-Point” Scholarship honors the well-roundedness of our non-profit’s namesake, Genny Farnan. Genny was an exceptional person—skilled on the court, quick in the classroom, and active in her community. In high school, she scored 1,025 points for Wildwood Catholic’s girls’ basketball team. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Education: Health and Exercise Science from Rowan University and brought her knowledge to her career with the Middle Township Board of Education and Atlantic County Special Service School District. Meanwhile, and even after her cancer diagnosis, Genny volunteered frequently for the benefit of our Cape May County community, most often alongside John Lynch of the Lunch with Lynch Foundation.

 

We lost Genny to glioblastoma on March 31, 2016, before her 30th birthday. Next Gen 30, INC is our way of sharing Genny’s vivacious spirit with the community after her passing. We hope to encourage the inspiring students in our community, all in Genny’s honor.

 

To apply for The “Three-Point” Scholarship, please submit the following:
 

  1. Your most recent transcript from a Cape May County high school

  2. A brief essay (300-500 words) that quickly explains your contributions in academics, athletics, and service and then details the motivations driving your efforts in these three areas.


Deadline: Your completed application must be returned to your guidance counselor, completed on our online forms below, or emailed to nextgenthirty@gmail.com by Friday, April 15, 2022.

 

 




 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The "Pay it Forward" Scholarship Award

 

One $1,500 scholarship to a college-bound senior who was a member of a Cape May County high school’s 2021-2022 girls’ basketball team

Genny Farnan loved the game of basketball, from the moment she first learned to dribble as a young child to scoring 1,025 points as a member of the Wildwood Catholic girls’ basketball team. Genny strived for excellence; she wanted to be the best and got the best out of her teammates. She lived her life with the mission of helping others, to be a leader in the community and to “pay it forward.” While working and battling cancer, Genny was an active volunteer for her friend John Lynch’s Lunch with Lynch Foundation. In her battle with cancer, she demonstrated the same determination, athleticism, and resilience she showed not long before on the basketball court.

 

We lost Genny to glioblastoma on March 31, 2016, before her 30th birthday. Next Gen 30, INC is our way of sharing Genny’s vivacious spirit with the community after her passing. We hope to encourage the inspiring students in our community, all in Genny’s honor. 


To apply for The “Pay it Forward” Scholarship, please submit the following:

 

  • A brief essay (300-500 words) explaining how you have “paid it forward” by applying lessons learned on the court to your life outside athletics

Deadline: Your completed application must be returned to your guidance counselor, completed on our online forms below, or emailed to nextgenthirty@gmail.com by Friday, April 15, 2022.

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The “Making of a Leader” Scholarship Award

 One $1,000 scholarship for a graduating 8th grade student of Wildwood Catholic Academy or Bishop McHugh Regional Catholic School who will attend Wildwood Catholic Academy for high school

Genny Farnan, our organization’s namesake, believed in the power of leadership. She attended Our Lady Star of the Sea and Wildwood Catholic High School, where her Catholic education inspired her altruistic spirit. She was an active volunteer and worked to use her Rowan University education to help others. When faced with a brain cancer diagnosis, she bravely accepted novel treatments, hoping to at least inform future research and treatments for others.

 

We lost Genny to glioblastoma on March 31, 2016, before her 30th birthday. Next Gen 30, INC is our way of sharing Genny’s vivacious spirit with the community after her passing. We hope to  encourage the inspiring students in our community, all in Genny’s honor.
