Rutgers-Camden to new students: We’ll cover all or half of tuition

By Greg Adomaitis | For

CAMDEN — A new grant program at Rutgers University’s Camden campus will make the college tuition-free for New Jersey students whose families make less than $60,000 a year.

“Bridging the Gap” — billed as the first program of its kind among New Jersey colleges — will be open exclusively to state residents graduating from high school in 2016 and will cover half or all of tuition after students apply for federal and state grants.
