    HCCC Foundation Scholarships

    The Hudson County Community College Foundation provides scholarships to HCCC students who:

    • Are enrolled in the current academic year or are new students who have completed the application and assessment process;
    • Are Hudson County residents;
    • Are U.S. citizens (or permanent residents of the U.S.A.);
    • Demonstrate a commitment to their studies by carrying a 2.0 – 4.0 GPA;
    • Demonstrate financial need.
    • Students may not receive more than one HCCC Foundation scholarship at a time.
    • Scholarships are for tuition purposes only; books and fees are not included.
    • Scholarships may not be applied towards outstanding balances from prior semesters.
    • Students may receive HCCC Foundation Scholarships in subsequent years, but may not receive an unmatched HCCC Foundation Scholarship for more than three years.


    HCCC Government Scholarships

    Each year, the Hudson County Executive and the Board of Chosen Freeholders will merit and need-based scholarships that will provide support for tuition, fees to students pursuing an HCCC degree on a full-time basis. Each scholarship is renewable for up to six semesters (three years) provided the applicant remains in good academic standing.


    1. Applicants must reside in Hudson County to be considered for scholarship eligibility.
    2. Currently enrolled students may apply.
    3. Applicants must meet the standard admission requirements set forth by the institution (see HCCC catalog).
    4. Applicants must enroll as a full-time student at Hudson County Community College.
    5. Applicants must submit a financial aid application to the college, although it is not a requirement to submit the form to the state or federal government.
    6. Scholarship recipients must maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.75 to maintain scholarship eligibility. Should a student’s GPA fall below the minimum requirement, they will have a one semester grace period to bring the GPA up to the required minimum. Should the student fail to bring the GPA up to the required minimum at the end of the grace period, the student will lose their scholarship eligibility.
    7. This scholarship may not be applied to prior balances.
    8. The annual deadline for complete scholarship applications is August 1st. (Should that date fall on the day when the College is closed, the deadline would be the first day that the College is open after August 1st).
