The Polish University Club of New Jersey grants a limited number of scholarships to deserving students in need of financial assistance for their undergraduate or graduate studies. The award embodies a moral obligation for the recipient to continue outstanding scholarship effort and propagate the scholarship idea.

The applicant is required to complete all items on the application. Completed forms are to be sent to the Chairman of the Scholarship Committee. Complete applications are to be received by March 20.

The 2015 scholarship application can be downloaded here.

The Polish University Club of New Jersey was originally conceived in 1928 by a small group of Polish-American college graduates, who formed a club known as the Polish Collegiate Club. The Club has always taken pride in supporting young adults who are striving for higher education and in 1941 awarded its first scholarship. Since that time, more than 500 scholarships have been awarded.
