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 time frame in which it will be reviewed by the scholarship committee. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis beginning in May and will continue until all scholarships have been awarded. 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.
Johnson College 2020-2021 Scholarship Recipients
Due to the increase of COVID-19 cases in and around Lackawanna County, Johnson College made the decision to forgo its traditional Scholarship Breakfast, which was scheduled to occur November 12, 2020. In its place, the College recorded this video to recognize the 2020-2021 scholarship donors and student recipients. Dr. Katie Leonard, President & CEO and Dr. Kellyn Williams, Chief Academic Officer celebrate the College’s students and scholarship donors. Congratulations to all of this year’s scholarship recipients.

- 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.
- Students are required to have a FAFSA on file to be eligible for a Johnson College Scholarship.
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.
