It’s true: people like you have played a big role in many of NJIT’s achievements, beginning with the founding of the university back in 1881.
Education costs have jumped in recent years, and NJIT’s tuition covers only one third of the true cost of educating each student. And yet our research and development programs have also grown dramatically, with expenditures exceeding $102 million in fiscal year 2012.
Funding from sources outside the university play a key role in our growth, and no contribution is too small to make a difference.
Where exactly do these contributions go?
- To students, through scholarships, fellowships, grants, sponsored internship programs, innovative academics, outstanding faculty, and top-notch learning facilities
- To faculty, departments and colleges, supporting scholarship, research, professional-level equipment, and ever-expanding programs
- To centers and labs, for their ongoing research in applied life sciences, bioengineering, information and communication technology, materials and material process engineering, and sustainable systems and infrastructure
