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.
