The mission of the Office of Scholarship Services is 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.
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 should complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application to assist our Office in confirming their scholarship eligibility. Completing this application may also increase your funding through grants and other types of financial aid. Students should go to Kean’s “How to Apply for Financial Aid” web page at https://www.kean.edu/offices/financial-aid/how-apply-financial-aid for instructions on how to apply for Financial Aid, as well as on how to complete a FAFSA application.
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.
