During the summer of 2009, 15 Future Scholars attended a series of graphic design classes, and were tasked with the challenge of creating the design for a t-shirt that would not only highlight the program but appeal to a broader audience including college students and alumni. Two of those designs were chosen to be made into t-shirts, and those shirts are now on sale exclusively at the Rutgers University Bookstore.


Shirts are available in adult and children's sizes. Proceeds from the sale of these shirts goes directly towards funding the Rutgers Future Scholars program.


Since 2009, the "Dream" T-shirts have netted nearly

$10,000 in Scholarship dollars for the Scholars
