The Employee Scholarship Fund was established in 2013 to address the financial needs of incoming students, and, in the course of just two years, the Employee Scholarship Fund has provided more than $33,000 to our students thanks to NEIT staff and faculty’s generosity.
As students enroll for the October quarter, many of them, even with financial aid awards, still fall short financially and may have been precluded from obtaining an education at NEIT. Due to your generosity and that of others in the community, nearly $65,000 in scholarships has been awarded to 27 students. Contributions to the Employee Scholarship Fund, the General Scholarship Fund and the Alumni Scholarship Fund have made these awards possible. If you have participated in past Employee Campaigns and designated your contributions to any one of those funds, or participated in the Annual Alumni Golf Tournament, you have had a “direct” impact on the future of these students. And that is something of which you should be very proud.

Congratulations to Kyle Daun, a Bachelor of Science degree student in NEIT’s Information Technology/Cybersecurity program, on receiving a generous scholarship from Lighthouse Computer Services through Tech Collective, Rhode Island’s Bioscience and Information Technology Industry Association. Lighthouse Computer Services awards scholarships to Rhode Island students enrolled in Information Technology programs at a Rhode Island college or university and with an affiliation to one of the five U.S. Military branches. Kyle enlisted in the U.S. Army at the age of 17 and served as a Military Police Officer for 12 years, stationed in Missouri, Germany, Hawaii and Virginia. Knowing a college degree would advance his career, this devoted husband and father of four young boys decided to enroll at NEIT. Still in the Army Reserves Kyle stated, “Enlisting in the Army after high school was the best choice for me.” This well-deserved scholarship could not have been awarded to a more worthy individual. Great job, Kyle!

“As economists, we pride ourselves on the fact that we want to look at the data,” John Williams, president of the San Francisco Federal Reserve, tells Yahoo Finance in the accompanying video. “We don’t have a bias one way or another. We just want to do the analysis.” And Williams says that analysis strongly points to the value of a college degree.
But college is an investment, Williams points out. Assuming a typical four-year public college tuition, it takes about “nine or ten years to pay back on that investment,” says Williams. “Then after that, it’s all gravy,” he says.

New England Tech is pleased to announce the establishment of the Brian F. Sullivan Memorial Scholarship Fund. This scholarship was established with the assistance of Micro Technology Group (MTG) with additional support provided by the Kaplan Simons Family Foundation. These organizations each donated $2,500 which will be awarded to eligible students enrolled in NEIT’s Electronics Technology programs.
Brian was an NEIT alum who graduated in 1984 with an Associate in Science Degree in Electronics Technology. Until his untimely death this past summer, Brian was employed at MTG as a manufacturer’s sales representative and became a close colleague and personal friend of Ed Renola, a senior executive at MTG. During a recent visit to the college to discuss the scholarship fund, Ed shared that Brian credited his professional success to the education he received at New England Tech. To honor Brian and recognize the impact that NEIT had on his life, Ed, along with another MTG executive, Spencer Simons, established a scholarship in Brian’s memory.
MTG had one special request with the establishment of the scholarship. Ed mentioned that he and Brian had a close mutual friend, Al Bucci. Ironically, Al’s grandson, Alex Bucci, is currently a NEIT student so MTG requested that Alex receive a scholarship in memory of Brian. A very industrious individual, Alex is currently a bachelor’s candidate in the Architectural Building Engineering Technology program. He also earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Construction Management in September, 2013 and an Associate in Science Degree in Building Construction & Design in March, 2012. Alex is also the co-owner of a construction company.
On January 14, 2015, much to his surprise, Alex was presented with a $1,000 scholarship as the first recipient of the Brian F. Sullivan Memorial Scholarship by Joelle DeQuattro–Sullivan, Brian’s wife, along with Spencer Simons from MTG. A well-deserving student was honored while remembering a well-respected grad.

On October 22nd, New England Tech kicked off its 2014 Employee Campaign, the first event commemorating the college’s 75th Anniversary. NEIT President Richard Gouse addressed faculty and staff sharing his vision for the future of the college. He explained how the college has reached a pivotal point in its evolution from its early beginnings in 1940 with the construction of its first 400-bed residence hall on the East Greenwich campus.
In honor of New England Tech’s 75th Anniversary, a goal was set to achieve 75% employee participation in the Campaign. It was truly an aggressive goal. However, with the passion, persistence, and excitement of the Campaign Captains and the generosity of faculty and staff, the 75% participation goal was achieved! The Campaign raised nearly $39,000 to support scholarships, the Building Fund, and a variety of specific technology programs.
In the words of Henry Ford, “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.” Recognition must go to those individuals responsible for making the Campaign such a great a success, the Campaign Team Captains: Cheryl Booker, Sherry Clukey, Tim Culhane, Kathy DaSilva, Melissa Hague, Anna Kelly, Bob Kennedy, Cheryl MacDonald, Mike Markarian, Anna Martinelli, Bill Menard, Rebecca Renaud, Carole Stiles, Susan Warthman, and Pam Wilkinson. They came together as Campaign Captains, stayed together, and worked together to achieve success.

The Grainger Foundation, an independent, private foundation, has donated $5,000.00 to New England Institute of Technology in support of the college’s mission to provide students with a hands-on technical education.

We are grateful to The Grainger Foundation for its generosity.”

Grainger has been a part of the Warwick business community for more than 30 years as the leading broad line supplier of maintenance, repair, and operating products. “We are proud to recommend the programs offered by New England Institute of Technology,” said Crowley. “We understand the goal of the college to support those students with financial need.”
The Grainger Foundation, an independent, private foundation based in Lake Forest, Illinois, was established in 1949 by William W. Grainger, founder of W.W. Grainger, Inc.
