About the Fund

The goal of the Highlanders Athletic Fund is to assist the Athletics Department as we help our student-athletes strive for excellence in all athletic contests and, most importantly, in the classroom. We are extremely proud of what these young men and women are achieving as they elevate NJIT to new heights athletically while staying strong academically. Through the Highlanders Athletic Fund, you can play a vital role in these initiatives and the success of the students we serve.

Providing the support that NJIT’s student-athletes clearly merit places significant demands on the resources of our university, demands that are increasingly difficult to meet in challenging economic times. This is especially true of moving ahead in Division I competition as state funding for public colleges and universities decreases.

Our programs are energized by exceptional talent and the winning Highlanders spirit, but they need your generosity to flourish.  Your contribution to the Highlanders Athletic Fund, which can be dedicated to a specific sport or a general category of support, will provide critical assistance in many areas, including scholarships, facilities and equipment. As you review this brochure, please consider participating in the winning ways of NJIT and an outstanding group of student-athletes through membership in the Highlanders Athletic Fund.
