Scholarships for continuing SAS students are awarded through the School of Arts and Sciences Scholarship Office.

The selection process will be rigorous and competitive. To receive an award, an applicant must have not only an excellent academic record, but recipients must have a strong record of service to the university and/or the community, and must submit outstanding essays.

To be eligible for an invitation to apply, a student must meet the following criteria:

  • Enrollment in School of Arts and Sciences – New Brunswick in Fall and Spring semesters
  • Meet the minimum cumulative GPA (determined by the scholarship committee) established at the end of the Spring semester. The minimum cumulative GPA for the academic year is subject to change from year to year.

Students are invited to apply for the SAS Excellence Award program based on the established minimum GPA. Invitations are emailed to eligible students via their official Rutgers email address and will be sent in mid-June.
