How To Become A Sponsor
To simplify the process, we have created three easy steps to become a sponsor.
After you create an account, you can use the tabs at the top of your profile to complete the steps.
All prospective Sponsors must submit the appropriate application to be considered.
You can expect our decision within a week max of the deadline. Early submission may receive special consideration for earlier approvals. We will notify you immediately once our advisory team approves your proposal. Even though we have now a larger capacity than at any time in the past few years, we receive a large number of projects that usually exceed our capacity. This is, of course, after meeting our criteria first.
Please note that if your project was approved, you must present the project to our students on-campus (at the Open House) and meet with them to select your team at our Sponsors Open House on Saturday, Sep 22, 2018 from 12-5PM at NJIT's Campus Center Atrium. Unfortunately, sponsors who don't attend this open house would normally have their projects canceled automatically.
Sign & Submit Agreement
Download the Sponsor Guidelines and Acknowledgment for Participation PDF below. Read, sign, and date the form. On the same day of submitting your proposal, fax form to:
All sponsors are expected to make the required minimum contribution after receiving the email approval to NJIT Foundation (Capstone Program account index # 200094), which is tax exempt. Projects without the required minimum contribution are canceled automatically and will not be part of the open house. The amount of this contribution is $2000 per a standard 4-people team $1500 per a medium size 3-people team and $1000 per a small 2-people team for small projects. Please be advised that sponsor contribution is not a fee for service but rather a shared responsibility of capstone expenses among all sponsors. These expenses are 100% students-driven which includes students meals, cash prizes, events resources, prints, external training needs, supplies, extended programs, etc. If your project was not selected for any reason at the open house, your contribution will be refunded upon your request.
When you write your check please make it payable to The Foundation at NJIT In the memo, please write Capstone Program account at NJIT - Index # 200094 - Sponsor Support Program Gift with a letter of support clearly indicating the purpose of this contribution in support of the capstone program budget and needs. Please address your letter to me (Osama Eljabiri) and provide me with a copy for our capstone records.
