Scholarships and Grants
A scholarship is a financial aid award to an individual student (a scholar) for the purposes of furthering their education. Merit-based scholarships are primarily awarded based on the students’ prior academic performance. Merit scholarships are renewable as long as the student maintains the minimum criteria to retain the award. Scholarships and grants do not get repaid.
Upon admission to Rider University, students that meet the criteria and qualifications for a scholarship automatically receive the award; no additional scholarship application is required. Awards are subject to change.
