For more than 125 years, the institution historically known as the New Jersey Institute of Technology has enabled talented young men and women to embark on careers in a broad range of technological, scientific and design fields. Generations of NJIT alumni have risen to prominence in the private and public sectors, realizing their full promise as leaders and innovators. NJIT is dedicated to making this opportunity available to as many outstanding applicants as possible, regardless of their financial circumstances. With the assistance of concerned supporters who share this vision for the future, NJIT will continue to nurture the aspirations of students whose personal success is vital for the well-being of our home state, the nation as a whole and the global community.
Since 1995, many of NJIT’s most generous supporters have gathered annually for Celebration, a black-tie affair that has raised over $3 million in scholarship endowment funds for students at New Jersey’s preeminent technological university. Celebration also honors individuals for achievements of great benefit to New Jersey and our nation, and organizations that have been exceptional in their commitment to the university’s mission.
