Scholarship

 

Union County College offers a wide variety of scholarships to help our students achieve their educational goals. Scholarships are a form of financial aid that does not have to be repaid. We have more than 200 hundred scholarships available to students every year. Each scholarship has different award requirements such as major, GPA, high school, city, community service and other specific criteria. Scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.  In addition, many scholarships require that you complete the 2014-2015 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to be eligible. You can complete your 2014-2015 FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov. Your scholarship application will not be reviewed until you have first been evaluated for all federal and state grants. If you have already submitted a 2014-2015 Union County College Scholarship Application, you do not have to submit it again. Your application will remain in consideration for any new or un-awarded scholarships for the 2014-2015 Academic Year (AY).
