2020 JOHN JAY COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS APPLICATION
John Jay College of Criminal Justice offers various institutional scholarships to support our newly admitted and continuing students.
Opportunities are available for undergraduate and graduate students and are generally based on strong academic work and a commitment to public service.
The college also offers scholarships to support students interested in studying abroad, conducting student research, and presenting at professional conferences. Most scholarships are open to all John Jay College students, regardless of residency/immigration status.
Scholarships are a form of financial aid. They are often considered “gift” aid or “free money” which does not need to be repaid. In general, a scholarship will not reduce any entitlement aid such as a Pell Grant or NY State Grants,
but may reduce loans, federal work study, or other “last dollar scholarships,” depending on the individual situation and in consultation with the student.
Any combination of scholarships and other awarded aid cannot exceed the cost of attendance.
