Scarlet Seniors

This campaign ended on May 15, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Rutgers University by clicking here!


I know how excited we all were to celebrate our last semester at Rutgers. While we won’t follow in the footsteps of those who walked before us, our graduation will certainly be memorable. 

As we prepare to move on to the next phase of our lives, no matter how unconventional our graduation will be, students and programs at Rutgers will still need support.

And right now, I know many members of our class need assistance. If you need support, guidance, or information, please contact

What we can control now is how we move forward. The Scarlet Seniors Class Campaign is a tradition designed to leave behind a legacy of philanthropy. Let's rally together to help our classmates, especially during these challenging times.

If you are able to make a gift, below are some suggested funds to support. Please also know you can choose to give to any Rutgers area you find most meaningful.

  • Rutgers–New Brunswick Dean of Students Emergency Fund or Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS) Students Emergency Fund
    Some students face a financial crisis after an emergency that could derail their academic progress. The student emergency assistance funds help provide a safety net to students in need.
  • Rutgers COVID-19 Response Fund
    This fund will support research, education, and clinical care at RBHS, the state’s leading academic health care system, as it responds to the COVID-19 pandemic              

The Class of 2020 is resilient. I know we will make it through these uncertain times even stronger, and we will celebrate our degrees and all of our accomplishments.

Stay well!

Scarlet Forever,                                                                            
Gabriela Eckensberger SAS’20
Scarlet Seniors Class of 2020 Campaign Coordinator

P.S. Any senior making either a $5 monthly or a one-time $25 gift to Rutgers will receive a philanthropy cord. All cords will be mailed in early June, after the Scarlet Seniors Class Campaign ends.
