Donors may elect to create and fund their own named annual scholarship. Annual Scholarships require a minimum investment of $30,000, which may be paid over a five-year period of $6,000 annually. Donors establishing named annual scholarships may have opportunities to interact with their scholarship recipient(s) through correspondence and the Annual Student-Athlete Scholarship Reception. They also receive all R Fund benefits with their associated scholarship gifts.
Donors may also elect to create and fund a named endowed 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 a minimum investment of $100,000, which may be paid over a five-year period of $20,000 annually. A fully endowed scholarship for an in state student-athlete requires a commitment of $700,000 which can also be made over the term of a five year pledge. A fully endowed scholarship for an out of state student-athlete requires a $1.1 million commitment. Endowed funds provide stable, long-term financial support for Rutgers student-athletes.
R Scholarship Fund (RSF)
Establishing a named 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 24 of our sports programs individually and collectively.
