Rutgers Board of Governors 1766 Charter Scholarships

A return to participatory athletics, competing against Rutgers' traditional opponents -- Colgate, Princeton, Lafayette, Columbia, Yale, Lehigh, etc -- would set aside enough of the money now being poured down the drain of commercialized Div IA athletics to provide full scholarships for 2012 top New Jersey students* (e.g. those with combined SAT scores over 1350 and a distinguished record of academic and intellectual accomplishment.)

Greg Brown, PhD in Classical Philology ( HPSU, Hon.), explains Aristotle's concept of anagnorisis to rapt audience of Scarlet R members.

In hopes of providing an incentive for BOG members to undertake so simple and obvious a means of beginning to restore Rutgers' academic and intellectual reputation, we've tried to imagine how the scholarship awards might be given after the vote to remove Rutgers from the sump of Div IA sports corruption had been taken.

Mr. Greg Brown, vice chair of the Board of Governors, reportedly donated several million dollars for a "recruiting lounge" to impress a handful of low-SAT football players. On the grounds that Mr. Brown might take special pleasure in being able to devote public money to making Rutgers more attractive to academically outstanding NJ students, we have reserved a disproportionate number of 1766 Charter Scholarships to be awarded in his name.
