Welcome to the Rutgers Business School-New Brunswick undergraduate scholarship website.

Scholarships are a great way to help pay for college and are one of many ways that you can fund your education. RBS scholarship awards are based on academic merit, demonstrated leadership, participation in organizations, community service, financial need, or any combination thereof. RBS scholarships are highly selective and are not automatically renewable.

Selection Process: RBS students now have an opportunity to apply for scholarships during the application period. Applications will be available in August/September of each calendar year for a 3-4 week period.  Email reminders will be sent to all RBS students.

The scholarship portal link is below and will become active when the application process opens. Carefully read each scholarship description before you apply. You may apply for more than one scholarship. Apply only to those you are eligible for. Take advantage of this great opportunity to help finance your road to success.

Scholarship Portal

Academic Scholarships:

  • Merit scholarships look for students with academic achievement, leadership qualities, and potential to contribute to the scholarly community.
  • Financial need scholarships are based on the student and family's financial record, and most of them require applicants to fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid – FAFSA. GPA is also a huge factor.

    Completing the FAFSA annually is how students apply to receive federal grants, loans, merit-based scholarships from Rutgers–New Brunswick, and work-study offers. FAFSA applications also determine if New Jersey students are eligible for state aid. All students are encouraged to submit a FAFSA every year.
