Scholarships and Awards

The School of Communication and Information is proud to be able to recognize high achieving undergraduate and graduate students each year by awarding scholarships and awards.  Each undergraduate and graduate program at SC&I offers its own scholarships and awards.

In order to apply for a scholarship within a given program, you must already be matriculated into that program.  Information about the scholarships, along with the scholarship eligibility criteria are listed in our application portal.  All students are encouraged to apply for financial aid by completing a Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA).  Additional information about the FAFSA application and other financial aid information is available on the Rutgers University Financial Aid webpage at
