SEWELL, N.J. — The Gloucester County Board of Commissioners, in cooperation with Rowan College South Jersey (RCSJ) and Rowan University, has established the Gloucester County Intern Scholarship Program to provide scholarship opportunities for outstanding students.   

In addition to the potential to save up to $150,000 for a four-year degree, the scholarship covers first year and second year tuition and academic fees at RCSJ and offers students meeting required criteria the opportunity to participate for a third and fourth year at Rowan University.

“In addition to taking their courses at RCSJ, students will intern in fields including business administration, criminal justice, engineering, nursing/heath, equine science/pre-vet, education, exercise science, psychology and technology,” Commissioner Director Robert M. Damminger said. “There is an opportunity for every student within Gloucester County.”

“Gloucester County, Rowan College of South Jersey and Rowan University are committed to fostering the next generation of industry leaders and innovators,” Commissioner Lyman Barnes, liaison to the Department of Education, said.  “We look forward to minimizing their college debt while providing meaningful work experience.  This sets a path for our student residents for future success.”

The Intern Scholarship Program is open to residents of Gloucester County with internships aligned with every major.  Applicants must be a current high school senior falling in the top 25% of their class OR have a 3.50 or greater cumulative GPA.  Eligible candidates will be interviewed for internship placement. 

Students have the potential to save up to $150,000 for a four-year degree. The program will cover first year tuition and fees at RCSJ and offers students meeting required criteria a third and fourth year at Rowan University.

The Intern Scholarship Program provides a unique opportunity for students to obtain valuable professional experience.
