New Jersey Tuition Aid Grant
- Scholarship Description
HESAA, the Higher Education Student Assistance Authority, is the only New Jersey state agency with the sole mission of providing students and families with financial and informational resources for students to pursue their education beyond high school. The Higher Education Student Assistance Authority provides many merit and need-based programs. Merit-based programs include the New Jersey Student Tuition Assistance Reward Scholarship, while need-based programs include many awards, such as the Survivor Tuition Benefits Program.
New Jersey’s Tuition Aid Grant (TAG) program is one of the nation’s largest financial aid programs, and New Jersey ranks among the top states in providing aid for needy students. Depending on your need, a TAG award can cover close to the full cost of tuition at a public college or a portion of that cost. The program also offers sizeable awards to attend in-state private institutions. One in every three full-time New Jersey students receives TAG, and awards may be used at nearly all New Jersey postsecondary institutions, including community colleges, state colleges and private schools. Deadlines will vary. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
