Scholarship Programs

The Office of Financial Aid does not select recipients for scholarships. If you are looking for scholarships, our website has resources which may be helpful in directing you to the correct department to provide you with more information. 

**Institutional scholarship funds will be applied toward direct costs including tuition, fees, on campus housing, and board for fall and spring semesters only. Institutional scholarship funds cannot be used to purchase Rowan Bucks that are not connected to a University meal plan. In the event a student has institutional scholarship funds remaining after their direct costs have been covered, the student will not receive a credit balance on their account nor will they be issued a refund check. If the University is unable to arrange on campus housing for a student, a refund may be issued to assist with the cost of off campus housing provided the student submits confirmation that the University could not accommodate them.
