Foundation Scholarships

Through the generosity of individuals, organizations and companies in the area, the Ocean County College Foundation awards a number of scholarships to deserving students each year.  In fact, in 2016, the Foundation awarded over $500,000.00 in scholarship support.

The Ocean County College Foundation offers a variety of scholarship opportunities for students. Scholarships are available for recent high school graduates, new students, current students and returning students.
