Make an Impact

The Department of Entomology's focus is donor-centric, mindful of what the donors and the department's constituents want to accomplish with their money. We recognize the importance of donors' intentions and facilitate the necessary interactions to support the department and Rutgers.

Scholarships for undergraduates, fellowships for graduate students, and awards help cover tuition and research, which allows us to attract and retain the best students to the Department of Entomology and continue our mission of providing instruction in the classroom, field, and laboratory, and opportunities for experiential learning on and off campus.

Support for research and faculty enables the Department of Entomology to enhance research projects, instrumentation, facilities, and other research expenses.

Some opportunities to make an impact include:

  1. Charles C. Compton and George M. Markle Entomological Fund

  4. John B. Schmitt Award
    Support this award that annually recognizes an entomology undergraduate student showing outstanding promise or significant contributions to the science of Entomology.
  5. Herbert T. Streu Graduate Student Endowment
    Support for this endowment helps the studies of students enrolled in the Entomology Graduate Program by providing funds for professional development, dissertation provisions, research supplies, etc.
  6. Karl Maramorosch Lecture Series
