Student-Athlete Scholarships

> The Sleeping Giant: Rutgers in The Big Ten

Scholarships are the lifeblood of Rutgers Athletics and they are also the department’s single largest recurring annual expense. Each academic year scholarships will cost more than $10,000,000.  When donors privately support student-athlete scholarships it reduces this expense thereby strengthening our financial position in many other critical areas of need.

Annual Scholarships
Donors may elect to create and fund their own named scholarship. Annual Scholarships call for a minimum investment of $30,000, which may be broken up into payments of $6,000 annually for five consecutive years. Donors establishing named annual scholarships may have opportunities to interact with their scholarship recipient(s) through correspondence and the Annual Student-Athlete Scholarship Reception. 

Endowed Scholarships
Donors may also elect to create and fund a named scholarship that will benefit student-athletes in perpetuity.  An endowed scholarship provides a consistent source of funding each year through investment of the principal.  Named endowed scholarships can be created with an investment of $100,000 ($20,000 paid over 5 years) or more.  A fully endowed scholarship requires a commitment of $650,000 which is also available through a pledge payment over 5 years.  Endowed funds provide stable, long-term financial support for Rutgers student-athletes and creating an endowed scholarship is one of the greatest gifts that a donor can provide for Rutgers Athletics.  In order to compete with our opponents in the Big Ten Conference, Rutgers fans MUST invest in our athletics programs and creating an endowed scholarship is a great way to do one’s part!  

R Scholarship Fund (RSF) 
Establishing a scholarship is not the only way to help fund the education of student-athletes. Gifts made to the RSF go directly to support student-athlete financial aid, which benefits all of our sports programs individually and collectively.
