Foundation Scholarships

Foundation Scholarship Opportunities

The Hudson County Community College Foundation offers a variety of scholarships to qualified applicants. Students may receive one Foundation Scholarship in a given semester. Scholarships must be used in the academic year for which they are awarded. Students receiving scholarships must be enrolled in a degree-seeking matriculated program. Students may reapply for scholarships each spring.

All students entering HCCC or currently enrolled students with GPAs of 2.0 to 4.0 are eligible for scholarships. ESL and Academic Foundation students are also eligible for scholarships.

Government Foundation Scholarship

HCCC participates in other student scholarships, such as the Hudson County Government Scholarship Program. Check with your advisor for further information.

Scholarships are awarded to continuing HCCC students, but new students may be awarded scholarships on a case-by-case basis.
