Scholarship Benefit Gala

Scholarship Benefit Gala Thank You

The Stockton University Foundation held its annual Scholarship Benefit Gala, bringing together more than 500 Stockton alumni, students, faculty and community members to raise funds to support student scholarships.

The April 20 event was held at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City, the event’s top sponsor for a third year. It raised nearly $400,000 to support the Stockton Foundation’s Scholarship Benefit endowment, which now totals more than $5 million. Read the full story here

Thank You for Supporting Student Scholarships!

Proceeds from the event support the Benefit Gala Endowed Scholarship Fund, which provides more than $175,000 in student aid annually.

"The Foundation Scholarship has relieved the financial burden of tuition and allowed me to pursue my education without worrying about the costs. Thanks to the scholarship, I've been able to focus on my studies, participate in extracurricular activities and even explore new opportunities like internships and research projects."

— Terrisha Edwards, Class of 2024
