New Jersey Scholarships

New Jersey offers some of the best postsecondary education in the country. Princeton University is widely considered one of the finest colleges in the world, and Rutgers University is among the oldest in the United States.

In addition to these school’s strong academics, New Jersey also features educational opportunities in the arts. The state is also home to Rider University’s Westminster Choir College, which boasts top vocal performance and music education programs.

Funding your education at one of these institutions isn’t always easy, but New Jersey scholarships can help. A variety of financial aid opportunities are available for New Jersey students to pay for tuition.

Popular New Jersey Scholarships

The New Jersey Student Tuition Assistance Reward (NJSTARS) is a popular scholarship program for incoming freshmen. This state-funded opportunity rewards New Jersey high school graduates pursuing full-time postsecondary study.

New Jersey Higher Education Student Assistance sponsors other programs, as well. The Tuition Aid Grant is a need-based award, and the Survivor Tuition Benefits Program is designed for surviving children of firefighters and policemen killed in the line of duty.

Many New Jersey scholarships are designed with particular career interests in mind. These include the AIA New Jersey Scholarship for architecture students, as well as the Harris Y. Cotton Memorial Scholarship for law students.

Applying for New Jersey Scholarships

It’s important to read up on the application requirements for New Jersey scholarships, as they may vary based on the award.

For example, as a merit award, NJSTARS only considers applicants who graduated in the top fifth of their high school class. Conversely, the Tuition Aid Grant only considers the applicant’s financial need.
