New Jersey Urban Scholars Program

High achieving students attending public secondary schools in the State’s urban and economically distressed areas (Type A and B school districts as defined by the New Jersey Department of Education) may be selected as Edward J. Bloustein Distinguished Scholars under funding provided through the Urban Scholars Program.


Students who rank in the top 10% of their class and have a grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.0 (on a 4.0 or equivalent scale) at the end of their junior year are considered for Urban Scholar awards. An Academic Index (AI) for each of these students is computed based on class ranking and GPA, and offers are made to candidates with the highest AI. Each participating Type A and B school receives a share of the total awards available based on class size.

Scholarships under the Urban Scholars Program are offered without regard to financial need. Candidates must be nominated by their high schools. Scholars must be eligible New Jersey residents. A New Jersey resident must have resided in the state for at least 12 consecutive months immediately prior to receiving the award. Scholars must attend New Jersey two-year colleges (primarily county community colleges), four-year colleges and universities, or approved programs at proprietary institutions.
