Q:  How does the Alumni Association support current students?

A: Today's students are tomorrow's alumni. We encourage students to think beyond graduation - to think of themselves as "alums from day one," so that they feel comfortable contacting alums for career advice, grad school recommendations, networking know-how, internship opportunities etc. So we often invite students to many alumni programs to facilitate these relationships. In turn, we encourage alumni to speak to classes, serve on panels, and research internship opportunities at their place of work.

In addition, thanks to our generous alumni, the Association offers about a dozen scholarships to deserving Stony Brook students to help them get the most out of their college experience. Over the years, the Stony Brook Alumni Association has awarded Stony Brook students over $156,000 in scholarship money. Visit our listing of Student Awards & Scholarships for details.
