William S. Guttenberg 44 Gives $1 Million for Endowed Scholarship As Part of the Albert Dorman Honors College Campaign

New Jersey students who are physically challenged have additional opportunities to pursue higher education thanks to a $1 million gift from an NJIT alumnus, William S. Guttenberg, who has continually demonstrated his dedication to physically challenged young people and to NJIT through his generosity. Yesterday Guttenberg ’44 signed a revised scholarship agreement for an additional $1 million to endow scholarships primarily for physically challenged students, students from Paterson, NJ and other urban centers, students who lost a parent in the September 11th terrorist attacks, and Honors College students. A successful entrepreneur and decorated World War II veteran, Guttenberg credited NJIT with giving him the tools to succeed. “I’d just like everyone else to have the same opportunities as I had,” he said. Bill has previously given comparable gifts and has his name is on NJIT’s largest academic building, the William Guttenberg Information Technology Center. Signing the agreement are from left: Joel S.
