On Sunday, April 27, the Rutgers University Athletics Department held the 46th Annual Rutgers Athletics Scholarship Reception. This exclusive reception is held each year to thank distinct members of the Rutgers Community for their generous support of Rutgers Athletics and its Scholarship Program.
The event was held at the Brown Family Recruiting Pavilion and Welcome Center, located at High Point Solutions Stadium, where representatives from multiple programs were on hand to meet and greet the attendees.
The Scholarship Program and its members’ dedication and unwavering support play a critical role in the success of Rutgers’ 24-sport Division I program. The Athletics department is grateful to the supporters who were able to take part in this special day, and appreciates their ongoing commitment to the athletic program and its mission.
Athletic Director Julie Hermann addressed the special guests, thanking donors for their loyalty to this program, and thanking student athletes for being great representatives of Rutgers University and the Division of Intercollegiate Athletics.
Current student-athletes, David Milewski (Football, Finance, ‘14) and Tylia Gillion (Women’s Track and Field, Journalism and Media Studies, ‘14) also addressed guests, highlighting their student athlete experience here at Rutgers.

Rutgers Scholarship Program Overview:
For any sports program with aspirations to compete nationally, a coach must have the ability to attract and retain the best and brightest student-athletes. This need will become even more critical as we enter the Big Ten Conference on July 1, 2014. That process begins with an offer of financial aid through a student-athlete scholarship.
Scholarships are the single largest recurring expense to our department on an annual basis and are the lifeblood of our athletic program. When donors direct funding to privately support student-athlete scholarships, it reduces this expense thereby strengthening our financial position in many other critical areas of need.
