When you support the University Librarian’s Academic Excellence Fund, you help students in Camden, Newark, New Brunswick, and Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences save money on their course materials.
Donations will be used to fund the Libraries’ OAT Program, which awards Rutgers faculty who make their courses more affordable for their students by using low-cost materials, library content, or open educational resources.
According to the College Board, the average undergraduate student should budget between $1,200 and $1,300 for textbooks and supplies each year. That’s as much as 13% of tuition at a four-year public institution! Supporting initiatives like the OAT Program helps reduce this burden on students and allows them to focus on what really matters—their studies.
