Ramapo College scholarships are merit based opportunities, meaning they are offered to students based on their academic and personal achievements, not financial need. Scholarship awards are offered in a wide range of amounts and are awarded for four years. The scholarship deadline for the incoming fall 2016 class was December 15, 2015 and all funds have been awarded.

Merit Based Scholarships for Freshmen Students for Fall 2017
Ramapo College automatically considers all first year (freshmen) applicants for a merit-based scholarship.
First year applicants are considered for merit-based scholarships based on academic performance and their potential to become active members of our community.
Typically students within the top 10% of their graduating class with at least a 1250 SAT (old SAT Critical Reading + Math only) or 27 ACT score are considered for one of our merit-based scholarships. All aspects of a student’s application are considered including extra-curricular activities, but limited funding and a large number of applications makes our scholarship awards highly competitive.
In fall of 2017, Ramapo College will be offering the following merit-based scholarships:
- Presidential Scholarship – $18,000/year ($72,000)
- Provost’s Award – $10,000/year ($40,000)
- Dean’s Award – $6,000/year ($24,000)
- Academic Achievement Award – $3,000/year ($12,000)
Scholarship awards are disbursed over four years provided that students maintain the required number of credits, grade point average and good social standing.
Unfortunately, due to an increase in applications and limited funding, the college may be unable to offer all students with the above criteria a merit-based scholarship.
To be considered for a merit-based scholarship, students must submit their application by the priority deadline, December 15, 2016 and all required credentials must be received no later than January 15, 2017. No separate application is necessary.
Scholarships for Accepted/Current Students
Full-time and part-time students, international students, and students already receiving scholarship aid are eligible to apply for the awards listed below. Candidates must be in good academic standing. Students may apply for more than one award as long as they meet all eligibility requirements.
Application forms include more detailed information about each award, including minimum GPA requirements and specific criteria.
These awards are made possible thanks to the generosity of alumni, parents, faculty and staff, and friends of the College. They are administered by the Ramapo College Foundation.
