EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.—In recognition of the NETS' 35-year history in New Jersey, the team will award the $35,000 Nets Foundation Appreciation Scholarship to three students from New Jersey who attend an accredited college or university in New Jersey in the 2012-13 school year.
The scholarship fund will be divided among three deserving students based on academics and community service.
