Financial support from alumni, parents, and friends help us create the innovative learning opportunities that challenge students to be their best at Rutgers and beyond. Here are just a few of the ways your financial gift can make a difference:

Funding Priorities


Emergency Assistance Fund

Assists students experiencing unusual and unforeseen financial hardships (i.e. house fires, burglaries, medical emergencies, etc.) who have exhausted all other resources.

Health and Wellness Fund

Funds student-centered, active learning initiatives that promote the health and wellness of the Rutgers community.
