The Dr. Lonesome Scholarship

This campaign ended on October 31, 2017, but you can still make a gift to The College of New Jersey by clicking here!

Have you ever asked yourself, “Where would I be, what would my life look like today, if it weren’t for the educational opportunity afforded to me by Project Chance, along with the support and encouragement of Dr. Casper B. Lonesome?”

Join The Friends of Dr. Casper B. Lonesome as we honor the tremendous impact Dr. Lonesome had on so many of our lives with a scholarship in his name to support future Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) students.

Dr. Lonesome served as director of the EOF, Project CHANCE, at the college from 1968 to 1985. Under his leadership, Project CHANCE helped hundreds of disadvantaged youth attend college and earn a degree. In honor of Dr. Lonesome, we have set a goal of raising $10,000 to put toward a $25,000 endowed scholarship in Doc’s name. Together we can honor this exceptional man and show our appreciation for the tremendous impact he’s had on so many of our lives by supporting future students.

We can all agree that Dr. Lonesome changed lives, and because of Project CHANCE, we were free to dream big dreams. Join us in honoring his legacy.
