Charter Day

Virtual Charter Day  |  June 12, 2020 

Charter Day Tent

Each year since 1990, Fairleigh Dickinson University has honored an individual in recognition of professional leadership and community contributions. Support from Charter Day enables a number of students to attend the University as Charter Day Scholars. These undergraduate students exhibit significant leadership on campus and in the larger community, and earn cumulative grade point averages of at least 3.0. Charter Day Scholars show a personal commitment to developing the same leadership qualities as the Charter Day honorees.

Since 1990, Charter Day activities have raised more than $10 million toward scholarships for motivated students. This exciting success is due to the goodwill and generosity of corporations, foundations, alumni and friends of Fairleigh Dickinson University, and the dedication and diligence of the individuals who serve on the Executive Dinner Committee each year.
