Supporting the Rutgers Future Scholars Program



In addition to the important societal impacts of the Rutgers Future Scholars; this initiative is also demonstrating exceptional resourcefulness in efficiently leveraging the internal assets of the university. But even with that critical management acumen, a program as ambitious and far reaching as Rutgers Future Scholars is increasingly dependent on a wide range of funding sources-particularly today, given the state of New Jersey's significant economic challenges.

To be sure, the support of corporations, foundations, alumni, friends and other caring individuals is critical to the program’s long term viability. If you are compelled by the mission and goals of the Rutgers Future Scholars program, we invite you to join us through the act of giving. Your generous contribution can truly make a difference, as we transform lives, ignite dreams of college, and open up new worlds of possibilities.
