Kean University Foundation Scholarship Awards
The Kean University Foundation sponsors hundreds of named scholarships for incoming freshmen, undergraduate and graduate students. All Foundation scholarships are awarded through a common online application. Unless the descriptions indicate otherwise, the number of awards in each category, scholarship availability and award amounts will vary.
While several Foundation scholarships are open to transfer students via the online application, they are not automatically awarded based solely on academic merit. This includes the Phi Theta Kappa scholarship, which is not guaranteed to all transfer students with matching criteria. Like all other Foundation scholarships, it is highly competitive.
Most Foundation scholarships are granted as one-time awards, and all Foundation scholarships are awarded based on active donor support, meaning that not all scholarships listed are awarded each year. Interested students must complete the Kean University Foundation Scholarship Application, for which the deadline is March 1st.
Foundation scholarships are listed within the following categories:
Incoming Freshman Scholarships
Scholarships for Any Major
Business and Public Management Scholarships
Scholarships for Education Majors
Scholarships for Humanities and Social Sciences Majors
Natural, Applied and Health Sciences/STEM Scholarships
Visual and Performing Arts Scholarships
Graduate Student Scholarships
