Scholarships

The Thomas Edison State University Scholarship Program is designed to assist students in meeting their financial commitments to the University while they take advantage of the many credit earning options available to them. The University Scholarship Committee, in conjunction with the Office of Development, conducts the annual award period. The list of current scholarships and the associated award period dates are available on the University website at www.tesu.edu under Tuition and Financial Aid.
