Scholarships for Freshmen Students

Merit Based Scholarships for Freshmen Students for Fall 2018

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 2018, 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, 2017 and all required credentials must be received no later than January 1, 2018. No separate application is necessary.
