The Felician Promise Grant allows qualified students to graduate from Felician University without debt. Beginning Fall 2021, graduates of Bergen, Middlesex, Union, and Passaic County Colleges, who are recipients of the County College Opportunity Grant (CCOG), and have an annual family income of $65,000 or less, can earn this scholarship as an alternative to taking out student loans. 

The Felician Promise Grant can be applied to eight semesters of full-time enrollment at Felician University. This means that students who are awarded this grant will graduate and begin their careers essentially debt-free.

This grant is available for all traditional undergraduate academic programs within Felician’s four schools, Arts and Sciences, Business and Information Sciences, Education, and Nursing. With the Felician Promise Grant, qualified students will be supported through whichever academic path they choose.
