Scholarships and Awards

The School of Communication and Information (SC&I) 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.

Information about the department scholarships and scholarship eligibility criteria are listed below.  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 Rutgers University Financial Aid webpage.

Please check back soon for the 2019-2020 SC&I Scholarship Application information.


  1. All applicants must set up an account in the scholarship application portal in order to access the application. Register here for a new WordPress account. If you have already established a WordPress account or if you are returning to finish an incomplete application, log-in with your original credentials. Once logged in, the link for the Scholarship page will appear.
  2. Students matriculated in the COM or JMS majors should complete the application associated with that award. COM or JMS students may apply for more than one award within their COM or JMS program. If you are an ITI, MI, or MCM student, you do not need to select multiple scholarship applications.  The faculty scholarship committee will review your application and consider you for the most suitable award offered by that department.
