RBSAA Scholarship Fund
"Paying It Forward"
Dear Alumni and Friends,
We come from all 50 states and more than 70 countries worldwide. We are intellectually flexible, creative and globally aware. We are leaders in finance, accounting, marketing, and more. More than 33,000 strong, we are proud members of a global alumni network - the Rutgers Business School Alumni Association (RBSAA). Founded in 1948, the RBSAA has been a valuable resource to the school, the students and the alumni for over 60 years.
Our school’s multidisciplinary approach to education, diverse culture, and high-caliber faculty combined in just the right way to give us an unprecedented advantage over our peers as we entered the workforce. But this would not have been possible without the generosity of alumni who came before us.
Some of us received a full scholarship. Others worked three jobs while attending classes just to cover tuition. While our experiences varied greatly, one thing unites almost all of today’s RBS students: financial aid is vital to their experience. In fact, our school’s most acute need right now is for scholarships.
The cost of tuition rises each year, and cuts in federal and state aid programs make it harder for students to bridge the gap. This scholarship fund creates attractive aid packages and provides students with the means they need to pursue their education. With the financial burden easier to bear, these scholars can spend more time enriching their experience by participating in case competitions or collaborating with faculty on research projects in fields like pharmaceutical management, small business development, ethical leadership and more.
Gifts to the RBSAA Scholarship Fund will also allow RBS to compete with its peer institutions and recruit the brightest candidates to its growing undergraduate program and MBA program. In short, the greater the work produced by our school and its students, the higher our school’s rankings in publications like US News & World Report, The Wall Street Journal, and The Princeton Review. As our school’s reputation grows, the value of our degrees grows with it.
The RBSAA Scholarship Fund originated by and funded through the RBSAA is managed by Rutgers Business School and the Rutgers University Foundation. These scholarships go directly to RBS students in the each year. Even though we award from all our scholarships about $20,000+ per year, we want to be able to increase that amount each year and are asking your help to do so.
You made an investment in yourself when you came to RBS. Here, you gained a strong footing for a successful future. Now is your chance to invest in the students that will follow in your footsteps.
