SCHOLARSHIPS FOR THE 2021-22 ACADEMIC YEAR

The majority of scholarships made available by the Brookdale Foundation and the Brookdale Alumni Association are awarded through the College’s Financial Aid department to students who do not receive federal or State grants but who have filed a Federal Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) form.

We encourage all students & families to file the FAFSA form in order to be considered for scholarships. Questions about FAFSA? Visit the Financial Aid website, or contact the Financial Aid office at (732) 224-2361 or e-mail questions to faoffice@brookdalecc.edu
