Cooper Medical School of Rowan University (CMSRU) will provide accepted students with the opportunity to annually apply for donor-established institutional scholarships. Accepted students must file their FAFSA and submit the CMSRU Institutional Form annually in order to be considered for institutional scholarship funding. Required documents will be reviewed by the CMSRU Financial Aid Scholarship Committee. The majority of the scholarships are based on financial need. Students will be notified how to apply for CMSRU institutional scholarships upon admission to CMSRU.
Students who are natives of the city of Camden and who have spent a significant part of their K-12 education in the Camden city school district may be eligible for one of the five full tuition scholarships. Eligibility will be determined after acceptance to Cooper Medical School of Rowan University.
