Scholarship awards range in 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.

Ramapo College automatically considers all freshmen applicants for a merit scholarship award. The application to apply to Ramapo for Fall 2017 will open on August 1, 2016. The priority deadline for merit scholarship consideration for the fall 2017 semester is December 15, 2016. All applications must be completed by January 15, 2017.
Ramapo College considers students for merit based scholarships based on academic performance and their potential to become active members of our community. All aspects of a students’ application are considered.
Unfortunately, due to an increase in applications and limited funding, the college may be unable to offer many students a merit based scholarship.
Awards are continued for four years provided that students maintain the required number of credits and grade point average.
No separate application for the above listed awards is necessary.
