The Frances L. Chalif Senior Scholarship Fund was begun by Amos Chalif to honor his sister Frances. She died in an automobile accident involving a drunk driver on her way to Palm Sunday Mass.
The first scholarship auditions were conducted on April 5, 1987. The scholarship was maintained by Amos until his passing in 2012. The scholarship name was changed to honor both he and Frances to show our appreciation for his generosity to our organization.
The scholarship is now solely funded by ADT-NJ. It is awarded annually by audition to high school students of ADT-NJ members in good standing.
The 34th Annual Frances L. Chalif Memorial Scholarship Audition will be held on Sunday, June 20, 2021 in the style of jazz.
**NEW Format (as of 2018)**
This year the scholarship audition was conducted in a class format rather than a solo audition piece.
Students took a 1 1/2 hour class in the designated genre as well as submitting a brief essay.
