Stockton University Migration Studies Scholarship

The Migration Studies Scholarship is open exclusively to currently enrolled Stockton University students who earn/maintain a 3.0 GPA and have a declared minor in Migration Studies via Academic Advising. This program awards up to three scholarships per term to qualified students. Each scholarship award is up to $2,500.

Not a Migration Studies minor? Don’t worry, there’s still time to declare the minor if you’re interested in this important subject matter and its related career paths. Contact Academic Advising via advising@stockton.edu.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA
Applicants must already be minoring in Migration Studies at the beginning of the application semester.

  • This is a biannual scholarship program with separate applications/scholarships awarded for both fall and spring semesters. This means students can apply for consideration twice during the academic year.
  • WARNING: Interested students who do not presently have a declared Migration Studies minor are encouraged to matriculate immediately into the program, so that they can apply when the new application cycle opens next semester.
