This scholarship is from a college located in New Jersey, the Felician University operates as a private health institution. Since 2015, there have been only two widely used campuses. However, each is located in a different city but still located in the state of New Jersey. Originally the first name used to present the school was the Immaculate Conception Normal School by the Felician Catholic Sisters who discovered it in 1923. The name of this institution has been changed a number of times.
Felician University may be located in New Jersey but it’s less than 20 miles away from one of the biggest cities in the world, New York City.
The University operates in two areas within New Jersey where students can attend in-person and on-campus classes. There are actually multiple universities operated by the Felician institution and this one just so happens to be 1 of 25 or more. For more than a decade, the Normal School trained in-service teachers and qualified them for state certification.
During the year 1935, the Normal School was raised to the status of a teacher training college approved by and affiliated with the Catholic University of America. The students who belonged to a religious order completed a maximum of seventy-two semester hours of their undergraduate work at the College and then transferred to the Catholic University of America, Seton Hall, or Fordham Universities.
It would not be until 1967 that this private college would actually reference itself as Felician University, where the institution promptly became a four-year graduate center.
As a matter of fact, women make up more than half (around 75%) of the student population, with more than 65 different field studies for students to major in.
Some of the top rankings that Felician is most known for are:
- Becoming known as the third private institution in New Jersey for the best value in 2017, garnering a spot in history as the 3rd best private school in the state.

How to Apply
The only legal way for international transfer students to apply is to send out a transfer notice to the current institution they are attending, and the transfer notice will be accepted by Felician University. All possible recipients of this award must receive an acceptance or congratulations letter from the institution to know that they have been accepted.
Students can apply online under the “International Students Transfer Application.” Here students will need to provide their basic information such as full name, current country, current street address, and e-mail. Along with their transcript and schooling information. Now a student who transfers, to the school that they are attending this second will need to be informed about their transfer decision.
Reward – Extra Benefits
The rewards are fairly high, however, this is a private university (all ivy league colleges operate under private college funding) and they can essentially provide more funding when asked for.
Anywhere between $2,000 – $20,000 can and will be awarded to the student who is seen as academically fit for this institution. More so, the panel of judges or the judges at admissions are looking for transfer students that show great knowledge towards health practices and leadership skills.
While the school has different deadline dates for underclassmen, undergraduates, and others. The official deadline date for transfer students is separated into two seasons. The first Fall semester deadline date is July 1, 2022. And the second is the Winter approaching seasons where the deadline date falls on December 1, 2022. So there is still plenty of time to apply.
As always, students should note that deadline dates are always subject to change or extension. If a student needs extra time, simply contact admissions or the phone number provided to see if an extension can be granted.
If an extension cannot be granted then a student can wait to be weight-listed if it concerns being able to receive a student visa or if family matters happen first.
Open Submission Window Time Frame
Open submissions are currently open and the university is accepting applications as this is being read! There are two timelines available for students who wish to attend in the Fall or the Winter semesters. This is up to the student to decide on which one would work best for them. If they are not yet close to having 12 credits or more before applying, then waiting would be the better option.
This is an annual scholarship that is awarded to international transfer students only. International first-year students will not be awarded this as a recipient because they do not fit the primary qualification, which is to have at least 1 year completed at a different school before transferring.
