Scholarship Celebration


Each fall, we come together to celebrate the many deserving William Paterson students who receive donor scholarships, and to recognize the generosity of the donors who support our students. Please watch the video of this year’s event, below, which was a virtual event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope that you will be inspired by the messages from scholarship recipients, scholarship donors, and University leaders.

Providing scholarship donors and recipients with the opportunity to meet and interact is typically a highlight of the evening’s festivities. Although we cannot meet in person this year, we want to offer our scholarship donors the opportunity to connect directly with their scholarship recipient(s).

If you are a scholarship donor and would like to meet your scholarship recipient(s), please complete and submit the electronic Meeting Request Form. We will be happy to facilitate a virtual (i.e., video conference or phone) meeting that will be scheduled for a future, mutually determined day and time.

For questions or additional information, please contact the Office of Donor Relations at (973) 720-3811 or
