More than half of students at Essex County College receive some sort of financial aid, both need-based and merit-based.
Dozens of scholarships in both categories are available to students attending ECC, for students of all kinds. Many scholarships are targeted to incoming freshman students, but there are other scholarships targeted to people from all walks of life.
In addition, some scholarships can continue to benefit students long after they graduate from ECC. We are New Jersey’s leading producer of Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Transfer Scholars. Those scholars each receive $120,000 in scholarships to continue their education at the university level.
