All Opportunities

By completing the General Application, you place yourself in the pool for all scholarship opportunities for which you are eligible based on your student information and your answers to the questions in that application.

Below is a list of all donor scholarship opportunities offered by William Paterson University for the coming academic year. The majority will be awarded by the Donor Scholarship Committee. The remainder will be awarded by the Enrollment Management division or an academic department; these awards may not be based on information from this application.

If a scholarship requires additional information to determine your eligibility, you will see an “Apply” button. You may also review “Recommended Opportunities” for a condensed list.

Please note: unless specifically stated otherwise in the description, all scholarship recipients must be full-time students (12 undergraduate credits or 9 graduate credits) at William Paterson University for each of the fall and spring semesters and maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher. (Academic status and progress will be evaluated at the conclusion of each semester.)

Additionally, the number and amount of scholarship awards shown are for general information purposes only, and should not be considered a guarantee of what you will receive if selected. Actual award amounts vary based on students’ individual eligibility factors and funds available.

If you have problems or questions, please contact IAScholarships@wpunj.edu. We will do our best to ensure a timely reply; however, it may be 1-2 days, especially over the weekend.
