The Rowan College Foundation at the Gloucester campus offers a variety of scholarship opportunities for students who are enrolled on the Gloucester Campus. Scholarships are available for recent high school graduates, new students, current students, and returning students. Scholarship opportunities vary in amount and typically apply to the fall and spring semesters. Foundation Scholarships are not available for winter or summer sessions.
Scholarship applicants must be admitted to Rowan College of South Jersey. If not currently admitted, complete an application for admission prior to applying for scholarships. Once admitted to Rowan College, students will receive a student ID, username and password for access to the Rowan College Portal as well as to the online scholarship application system.
Scholarship applicants must provide the following documents submitted through the online scholarship system:
- Submit a 250-word essay clearly stating educational and career goals.
- Submit a transcript of grades (high school and/or college)
- Submit additional information as required by scholarship opportunity
Important: Failure to comply with these guidelines and requirements will result in rejection of the student’s scholarship application.
Scholarship Recipients are selected by the RCSJ Scholarship and Awards Committee which is composed of members from the RCSJ-Gloucester campus faculty and staff. Recipient selection for a scholarship is competitive, and each completed application is reviewed and ranked by the committee.
Scholarship awards are processed through the Office of Financial Aid. Students can view their scholarship awards in the Self-Service section of the student portal. Scholarship funds are not directly paid to the student but will be applied to the student's term bill by the Office of Financial Aid.
Book scholarships are scholarship opportunities that will not pay for tuition or fees. Recipients may only use their book scholarships at the RCSJ-Gloucester campus bookstore. Book scholarships follow the same rules and deadlines as traditional financial aid book vouchers. Recipients should verify fund availability and deadlines prior to attempting to purchase books or other required supplies
New Jersey STARs and Community College Opportunity Grant students are eligible to apply for Foundation Scholarships. However, the students should check with the Office of Financial Aid to determine if their state grants and scholarship funding amounts will be impacted by Foundation Scholarship awards.
