Johnson State College Institutional Scholarships
Institutional merit scholarships are the largest source of scholarships at Johnson State College. They are funded by alumni and friends of JSC and generally are awarded based on particular criteria, such as grade point average, SAT/ACT score or exceptional talent. Other scholarships may be awarded based on affiliation with a certain group or interest in a specific subject area, such as math or science. Need-based scholarships and grants are awarded based on financial need. Some scholarships are awarded based on both merit and financial need.
Current full- and part-time students, new students and transfer students are encouraged to apply for a JSC institutional scholarship. Explore the links below to find information about JSC scholarships and the application process.

Johnson State College is an NCAA Division III institution and per NCAA regulations is prohibited from offering any athletically related financial aid. Athletic participation, leadership or ability is never considered in selecting recipients for scholarships offered by the college.
Like all Johnson State College students, NCAA Division III student-athletes are permitted to receive institutional grants and scholarships from JSC provided they meet the award criteria.
Other Sources of Scholarships
Private foundations, civic organizations, and others provide additional scholarships. In our experience, most students who receive outside scholarships receive them from organizations within their home community. For this reason, we encourage you to check with your high school, local civic organizations and religious institutions to see what scholarships are available.
