The Rochester Education Justice Initiative (REJI) offers cost-free higher education to incarcerated individuals and supports formerly incarcerated Justice Scholars in the Rochester area selected based on their academic accomplishments and community contributions.

With your generous support, REJI can:

  • Make college opportunities accessible to more incarcerated students.
  • Help Justice Scholars cover tuition and living expenses in their entirety.
  • Build an endowment to ensure sustainable programming for years to come.

Your gift will help incarcerated and formerly incarcerated students access a world-class higher education, enrich our campus community, and make the University of Rochester a force for transformative justice locally and nationally.
