All Opportunities

Welcome to the Bergen Community College Scholarship Opportunities Homepage.

Below you will find a listing of scholarship opportunities that are available to registered BCC students with brief information about each opportunity and the qualifications.

Application Process:

  • To access the General Application, click the “Sign in” button located at the top right of this page and use your BCC username and password to log in.
  • Once logged in you will then have the opportunity to complete the General Application.
  • After you have completed your General Application, the system will automatically match you to all scholarships you are eligible for based on the information you provided.

The majority of the scholarship opportunities offered by BCC are auto-matched through the General Application and you may not be required to complete any further applications. If you are eligible for additional opportunities that require supplemental information, these will display for you once you have completed and submitted the General Application. These are identified as Recommended Opportunities.

Many of our opportunities are funded through the generosity of donors within our communities. Be advised that all funding is subject to receipt from donor.

For optimal compatibility, access the application system using any newer browser, e.g. Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Apple Safari.
