Torch Donors

Northeastern’s friends and supporters have joined together to honor the university’s tradition of creating opportunities for students from modest means. These generous donors have made it possible for Northeastern to launch and sustain the Torch Scholars Program and transform high potential into high achievement.


A special thanks to Anthony, E’ 67, and Michele Manganaro and their children Todd Manganaro, DMSB’95, Renee Enright, AS’91, and Nicole D’Amore, L ’97, who helped to develop the program and underwrote ten of the eleven inaugural Torch Scholars.


Alumni and friends of Northeastern can support the Torch Scholars Program to ensure the program’s longevity and continued success. To learn more, or to make a donation, contact Charlotte Troyanowski at 617.373.3026 or
