For 150 years since Stevens was founded, generous alumni and friends have supported talented students with scholarships. Generations of these students have become alumni who fill leadership roles in society and pursue solutions to the world’s most complex problems.

This academic year is one of the most challenging in Stevens history. Due to the pandemic, students have had to adjust to online classes while losing access to activities on campus. Many have also lost opportunities at gaining professional experience and earning money for tuition through internships and off-campus jobs.

During this difficult time, the Stevens community has come together to show how support for scholarships matters more than ever. Scholarships alleviate financial burdens and stress, freeing students to focus on their education. A new initiative during the pandemic, the Stevens Rises Relief Fund, is providing students with emergency support, such as for groceries and wi-fi hotspots for home learning.

Scholarships are also addressing a societal need to confront inequality and expand opportunity. Through the ACES initiative, Stevens provides pre-college and undergraduate scholarships to students from communities that are underrepresented in STEM fields.These promising students make Stevens a more inclusive community while preparing to fill roles in the workforce of the future.

During The Power of Stevens campaign, alumni and friends have established prestigious scholarship programs such as the Lawrence T. Babbio '66 Pinnacle Scholars Program and the A. James Clark Scholars Program. These scholarships join with hundreds of others named for class years, families and individuals, affinity groups, and corporate and foundation partners.

Scholarships are possible because of generous alumni and friends who care about students and their futures. We are always grateful for that support, especially this year.
