Dear Colleagues,
The 2013-2014 Foundation and Alumni Association Scholarship application is now available online at http://www.wpunj.edu/scholarships/ or via the link on the University’s homepage.  By filling out this one application, students are considered for hundreds of scholarships worth thousands of dollars.  I ask that you please share this wonderful and much needed opportunity with your students and encourage them to apply.
In addition, if you should receive a request via e-mail to complete a letter of recommendation for a student who is applying, please do so in a thoughtful manner by the deadline specified.  These letters are an important part of the selection and stewardship processes and can often be the determining factor between two close candidates.
If you have any questions, please refer to the attached materials, or feel free to contact Amanda Vasquez, Director of the Office of Scholarships, at 973-720-2929 or Elizabeth Fitzpatrick, Donor Relations Manager, at 973-720-3811.
Thank you in advance for your help in providing our students with the financial support they need to continue their education at William Paterson University.
Pam Ferguson
