Additional Merit Scholarship Opportunities for Newly Admitted Dorman Honors Students 

While all Dorman Honors College students receive a significant Honors Merit Scholarship, newly admitted Honors College students are also offered the opportunity to apply for additional awards. 

Students can apply for additional scholarships by completing this form and uploading the appropriate materials for consideration; applications must be submitted by APRIL 1, 2017. This form enables incoming first-year students to apply for the following scholarships:

 

Frederick and Florence Bauder Scholarship For first-year students with a particular ability in chemistry, mathematics or physics (although all majors are eligible).
Women with STEAM (WWS) Scholarship For first-year female scholars.  Five scholarships of $1500 each will be awarded to students pursuing a degree program in science, technology, engineering, architecture, or mathematics and attend an annual WWS forum at NJIT.  Selected scholars will also be awarded an incentive scholarship of $500 if they maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher.
National Merit Scholarship Award For first-year students.  This scholarship provides $1500 per year for four consecutive years (3 years for accelerated students, 5 years for architecture students).  To be considered, students must be National Merit semi-finalists or finalists. 
STEM Academy Scholarship For first-year students from a magnet or specialized STEM high school.  This scholarship provides $1000 per year for four consecutive years (3 years for accelerated students, 5 years for architecture students).  

These scholarships may be awarded in addition to any scholarships granted by NJIT.  However, they may impact your financial aid awards package.
