One Vision. One Mission. Students First.
Gifts of every size move the University forward.
The cost of higher education is a real concern for students and their families. More than 85 percent of Stockton students qualify for financial aid assistance. Further demonstrating this need, the Foundation Scholarship program received more than 1,000 applications for the 2019-2020 award cycle.
- More than $718,000 was awarded to 494 students through 683 individual merit-based scholarships during the 2019-2020 aid year
- Scholarship amounts vary from $100 to $2,500 per opportunity
- Qualified students may earn more than one scholarship
Gifts made in support of the Stockton Foundation Scholarship program have an immediate, direct impact on students by preventing them from stopping out, en route to graduation and earning their degrees. The following priorities will be supported through Ospreys Give 2019:
- Foundation Scholarship General Fund — awards on average more than 200 scholarship recipients per year. Scholarship amounts range from $1,000 to $2,000 to support Stockton students.
- Atlantic City Scholarship Fund — When fully funded, this endowed scholarship will award approximately $20,000 annually to qualified students who graduate from Atlantic City High School and enroll at Stockton University. This fund demonstrates Stockton’s commitment to Atlantic City by offering talented students from the region the opportunity to achieve their dream of a high-quality education.
- Equal Opportunity Fund (EOF) Scholarship — supplement scholarship program for students who qualify for the EOF Grant through the State of New Jersey. It provides additional monies for EOF recipients who experience financial need due to costs related to their education, in which these burdens may become barriers to attending college.
- Hammonton Area Endowed Scholarship — supports graduates of Hammonton High School and St. Joseph’s High School who attend Stockton University, maintain good academic standing and demonstrate financial need per the FAFSA.
- Parent & Family Association Scholarship — awards scholarships thanks to the collective fundraising efforts and generosity of parents, families, friends and the Stockton University New Student & Family Programs.
- Unified Black Student Society (UBSS) and Black Alumni Scholarship — provides an annual award to students who are current UBSS members or are Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) candidates. Recipients must be full-time undergraduates or part-time graduate students in good academic standing with a minimum cumulative 3.0 GPA. Recipients are determined by the Scholarship Selection Committee.
