  • Provides scholarships to deserving jazz studies students of NJ colleges and universities.
  • Recognizes and rewards New Jersey jazz legends and those people that provide extraordinary support to jazz.
  • NJJS publishes a monthly magazine, Jersey Jazz, which contains feature articles, photos, music calendars, concert and CD reviews, NJJS information and is free with membership.
