Annual Scholarship Fundraiser — May 22, 2021

Join us for a special evening of celebration

There is much to celebrate this year and we invite you to join us on campus for the Annual Scholarship Fundraiser.

The Annual Scholarship Fundraiser is the University Foundation’s premier event to increase support for student scholarships. Our mission is to provide an opportunity for deserving students, regardless of their means, to achieve their educational goals, have successful careers, and become leaders within their communities.

This year’s event will be an evening of entertainment and celebration honoring four outstanding alumni whose professional careers have gained national recognition while remaining dedicated to their alma mater by sharing their expertise with our students, faculty and campus community. Read about our honorees.

The evening also will celebrate President Susan A. Cole in her final year and commemorate the growth and accomplishments she has achieved for the University in her 23 years of distinguished service. Read about Dr. Cole’s legacy.

For the continued safety of our students, performers, and guests, we are planning an outdoor event. The evening kicks off at 6:30 pm, with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails and a tented reception in front of the newly renovated College Hall. The program will take place at 8:15 pm in the outdoor Amphitheater, featuring performances by College of the Arts students, award presentations to our honorees, and a tribute to President Cole. All are welcome back to the tent for dessert, coffee, and cordials to close the evening. We welcome festive or business casual attire and recommend comfortable shoes or sneakers.

All Montclair State University guests, students and staff are required to complete a COVID-19 screening assessment prior to arriving on campus. Please read important event information for additional details about the event and our safety protocols.

Scholarship support is critical for the majority of our students to achieve their educational goals. We hope you will continue to support this important priority and help our students reach their goals and realize their dreams.
