Foundation Scholarships

Through the generosity of individuals, organizations and companies in the area, the Ocean County College Foundation awards a number of scholarships to deserving students each year.  In fact, in 2014, the Foundation awarded over $500,000 in scholarship support.

The Ocean County College Foundation offers a variety of scholarship opportunities for students. Scholarships are available for recent high school graduates, new students, current students and returning students.  The total dollar amount of scholarship support is dependent upon the student’s financial need, current GPA, and enrollment status at the time the payment is made.
