• Hudson County Government Scholarship

    Hudson County Community College was established to provide the people who reside in our County with the education and skills that will benefit them economically and socially. The College is constantly evaluating the challenges and demands of today’s economy and markets creating programs and courses of study to help our community thrive.

    The need for acquiring a college education is a must today. Despite everyone’s best efforts, the cost for that education is increasing, making it more difficult for some students to afford. Recognizing this, the Hudson County Government Scholarship was established to provide financial assistance for students who otherwise would not be able to attend Hudson County Community College. These scholarships provide financial assistance that bridges the gap between the College’s tuition and fees and the support available through other financial aid programs.

    Through HCCC, each year the Hudson County Executive and the Board of Chosen Freeholders award scholarships that provide support for tuition and fees (after all other appropriate financial aid and scholarships are applied). These scholarships benefit Hudson County residents who have attained a record of academic success and want to pursue an associate’s degree at Hudson County Community College. Each scholarship is renewable for up to three years, provided the applicant remains in good academic standing.
