The "Grudge" Legacy continues ...

With gratitude to Shelley Emmer (Colin's mother)

$7,125 raised

$33,000 goal

/ 150


In memory of Colin Rochester, Eta Chi Phi (NYIT) '08, this scholarship was started by his mother, Shelley Emmer, in 2016 as a way to remember all of the passion and love Colin had for Alpha Chi Rho. The Alpha Chi Rho Educational Foundation Scholarship Committee selects one (1) recipient each year based on financial need, service to the Fraternity and Brotherly love. Preference is for NYIT members but it is not a requirement. See the photos above for past recipients.


Originally funded at $20,000 by 2018, the fund continues to grow in an effort to reach a new goal of an additional $33,000 to fund service and educational grants for the NYIT Chapter and others. The total above reflects gifts started in 2018 until today. If we reach $33,000 by 2021, the fund will increase the current scholarship AND providing additional funding for grants!
