School of Engineering Alumni-Industry Scholar Program
The Alumni-Industry Scholar program, funded with the support of the alumni, provides selected Rutgers engineering juniors and seniors with a full academic scholarship at the level of in-state full-time tuition, many chances to network for industry-related opportunities, and career coaching with our esteemed alumni. The program is designed to set the stage for professional and personal success and to instill a commitment by scholars to continue the cycle by giving back to up-and-coming SoE students.
Renewal will be automatic for the senior year as long as a 3.0 cumulative GPA is maintained and the student actively participates in program activities.
Program activities for the fall semester include:
- Alumni Football Tailgate
- Medal of Excellence
- AIS-Coordinated Event
- Interns Present Lite
- General AIS monthly meetings
The application for AY2017-18 will open in early March 2017. Candidates must submit a School of Engineering Scholarship application. Pre-selected candidates will be notified, via email, regarding the interview and final selection process.
I am an Alumni-Industry Scholar
The first three scholars were named in 2012 and include Anthony Brown (Bioenvironmental), James Rizkhalla (Mechanical and Aerospace), and Kenneth Tian (Chemical and Packaging). As part of their academic and professional experiences at the School of Engineering they participated in hands-on internships with companies including Bell Helicopter, Estee Lauder, and TRC Environmental Corporation, during which they established relationships with supervisors who provided mentoring that continues today.
