Jeffrey R. Ralston Foundation

The Department of Criminology receives funding from the Jeffrey R. Ralston Foundation. Established by the late Betsy Ross Ralston Brooks `49, the Jeffrey R. Ralston Foundation was created in memory of her son, Jeffrey R. Ralston, a law enforcement officer in Monmouth County, NJ, who died in 1997 at age 34. Betsy Ross Ralston Brooks directed this Foundation to support scholarships for aspiring Law & Justice (now Criminology) students. Upon her passing in 2000, she arranged for her entire estate to be transferred to the Jeffrey R. Ralston Foundation.
