Please be sure to review carefully the scholarship terms and conditions that apply to you.

First-Year Students

Rutgers University–Camden school-based merit scholarships are awarded by the individual schools and colleges and granted to students who enroll in that specific school. If you are admitted to and awarded a school-based scholarship from more than one Rutgers–Camden school, you will only receive the scholarship from the school in which you choose to enroll, not both.

  • To accept your offer of admission and thus your Rutgers–Camden school-based scholarship, go to Your Rutgers Status  and indicate your intention to enroll in your school of choice. Once you accept your offer of admission, your scholarship will automatically be added to your financial aid package or credited to your account.
  • You will receive the scholarship and award amount indicated in your scholarship offer letter from the school in which you choose to enroll each year that you are enrolled in that specific school for a total of four years as long as you meet the requirements of your academic program and the minimum GPA required for merit scholarships.
  • If you receive any other Rutgers University scholarships that may be applied to the Camden campus, the value of that award will not be added to your Rutgers–Camden school-based merit scholarship. You will receive the scholarship with the higher amount, but not both.
  • This award amount is based on your residency. If your residency status changes at any point during the time you are receiving your award, the scholarship amount will be adjusted to reflect the correct status.
  • Your award amount is annual, divided between fall and spring semesters. Awards may not be applied to winter and summer courses.
  • Scholarships do not apply to online or second degree students.
  • Financial assistance from all sources, including scholarships, cannot exceed the cost of attendance.
  • Rutgers University reserves the right to modify and/or withdraw your merit scholarship if the credentials or conditions upon which the award was granted do not accurately and completely represent you and your scholastic record. In order to help students maximize their institutional aid, merit scholarships are awarded prior to federal grants, state grants, and/or institutional grants.
