Johnson College offers a variety of scholarships to meet the financial needs of new and returning students.
These awards may be based on financial need, community commitment, and/or academic standing. Each scholarship has specific criteria which is listed below.
The scholarship application which consists of four questions can be submitted via the web, email, in person, or by mail. Please be sure to follow the instructions carefully; each part of the application is reviewed and critiqued by Johnson College’s Scholarship Committee. Any student who submits a scholarship application who has not completed a FAFSA will not be taken into consideration for a scholarship until the FAFSA is complete.
Applicants will receive a notification letter from the Financial Aid office indicating receipt of their application, and the timeframe in which it will be reviewed by the scholarship committee. Priority deadline for returning students is May 1st and priority deadline for new students is August 1st. Upon review by the committee all submissions will receive a response.
Award amounts for endowed scholarship funds are determined annually according to earnings on the funds and in accordance with Johnson College policies.
- When to Apply
Scholarship applications are accepted throughout the spring semester for returning students. For returning students, a scholarship application can be submitted once a student has filed a FAFSA. Priority deadline for returning students is May 1st and priority deadline for new students is August 1st.

- Make Sure You’re Eligible
We want to help you get as much funding as you can, but a few things that can disqualify you.
- Incomplete scholarship applications will not be considered. Read the scholarship instructions carefully, and make sure you’ve submitted all of the application materials.
- If a student is currently in default status on a previous student loan, that student will not be eligible to receive a Johnson College scholarship. If you’re not sure about your loan status, or need help figuring out how to get out of default, contact our Financial Aid office.
- Late applications will not be considered. All applications must be received in the Financial Aid office by the deadline date.
Not all applicants will be awarded a scholarship. But, remember: you’re much more likely to receive a scholarship if you submit your application early.
*Johnson College annual scholarships are funded on a yearly basis and may not be renewed from one academic year to the next.
