Important Information:

  • Students may only receive funding once during their study at NJCU. A full year semester abroad may be funded for two semesters.
  • Students already receiving funding for international study from other University sources are not eligible.
  • Awards will be disbursed to students as a reimbursement check after they have commenced their approved international program.
  • If an applicant owes money to NJCU, that balance must be paid before the scholarship can be applied.
