It is the mission of the Office of Scholarship Services to help support the academic excellence of prospective and current deserving Kean University students through philanthropic scholarship support. The Office is dedicated to providing financial access to a world-class education, as well as upholding ethical standards of scholarship dissemination and assessment.
The Office of Scholarship Services functions within the scope of the University in their missions to strategically promote and grow the pool of available scholarships and further the advancement of scholarship recipients as they move beyond Kean University.
Note: Kean University is an NCAA Division III member institution. NCAA Division III rules prohibit the awarding of financial aid and/or scholarships based upon athletics criteria. Therefore, the University is prohibited from awarding financial aid and/or scholarships based upon athletic ability, leadership, participation or performance.
Kean University offers a number of scholarships to help qualified undergraduate and graduate students of every race/ethnicity, gender, and creed meet the financial requirements of attending college.
All students are also strongly encouraged to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which will improve their ability to receive needed funding through grants and other types of financial aid. The FAFSA application can be completed electronically by visiting www.fafsa.ed.gov.
The Kean University Foundation Scholarship Application is online from December 1, 2016 through March 1, 2017 (with a priority deadline of February 1 for incoming freshmen).
