St. Johns River State College is pleased to announce the scholarship application for the 2024-25 academic year is open.

Last year, the Foundation awarded more than $163K in scholarships, providing the financial assistance necessary to aid students in completing their degrees and become skilled members of the workforce. The selection of scholarships are designed to benefit students enrolled in a range of associates or bachelor’s degree programs and who possess different needs, talents and qualifications. Students are encouraged to apply early.
Before applying, students are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as some scholarships require it. The scholarship application closes April 1, 2024. For more information, visit https://www.sjrstate.edu/scholarships.
