Our students go places: into well-equipped labs and state-of-the-art classrooms, to professional internships with industry leaders, and onward to coveted jobs through which they make meaningful contributions to their fields.
These opportunities would be beyond the reach of many students if not for the generosity of people like you. NJIT’s tuition covers only one third of the actual cost of educating each student. We rely on other sources—including private donations, corporate grants and sponsorships, foundation grants, and government appropriations—for the remainder. With this support, NJIT students have access to:
- Scholarships, fellowships, and grants that honor hard work and help relieve financial pressures
- Hands-on learning and research opportunities with professors who are on the leading edge of their fields
- Top-notch technical teaching facilities and professional-level equipment
- Services and support to prepare for a successful career as well as numerous opportunities to connect with future employers
In addition, by supporting NJIT students and their work your gift contributes to technological and medical breakthroughs that provide far-reaching benefits to the public and to industry.

"The Arnold Allentuch Memorial Scholarship [went] directly towards paying my tuition. I treasured the award as if it were a family member. Without it, I felt I was on my own. Seeing it on my award letter brought a smile to my face, a deep breath, and a sign to continue moving forward and being the best I can be to society as an engineer and manager ... I will give back to you and NJIT along with all those who helped me in my educational journey."
