Steven W. Keneely/RUBAA Scholarship Information

Description: The Scholarship Committee had been established to direct the RUBAA's commitment of moral and financial support to Rutgers University Bands members. Two scholarships have been created:

The Steven M. Keneely/RUBAA Scholarship Fund, which has been named in memory of Steven M. Keneely - Clarinet/Drum Major, Class of 1976, has been established to provide support to dedicated undergraduates members of any Rutgers University Band and is held at the Rutgers University Foundation. Any corporate matching contribution can be applied toward this scholarship.

The Rutgers University Bands Alumni Scholarship Fund has been established to provide support to dedicated undergraduates of any Rutgers University Athletic Band and is held within the Rutgers University Foundation and managed under the auspices of Mason Gross School of the Arts. This scholarship had been established with the Scarlet "R" in 1993 (known as Athletic Giving since 2010) so individual contributors can gain credit in the University's season ticket allocation process (now known as the Priority Point System). Credit for contributions will still be applied toward University season ticket Priority Point Systems, but the scholarships will be managed under the auspices of Mason Gross School of the Arts. Corporations may or may not allow matching gifts to athletic scholarships, such as the Rutgers University Bands Alumni Scholarship Fund.

Purpose: The purpose of each scholarship is to provide deserving, undergraduate Rutgers University Bands members with funds that will assist them in the financing of their tuition and/or school supplies. Criteria will be based upon dedication and musicianship.

Keneely/RUBAA Scholarship Fund will be maintained in an account with the Rutgers University Foundation (account #53-55-04), under the auspices of Mason Gross School of the Arts, and transferred annually (or as specified by the RUBAA) to an account at Rutgers University (account #0-65504), where the principal will earn interest.
