Living up to our mission demands that we attract the brightest and most deserving students, wherever they live and whatever their means. For 43% of the undergraduate population at Rensselaer, there is a gap between the amount of financial aid Rensselaer can provide, and the amount of financial aid they need. Therefore, we are counting on Rensselaer alumni, friends, and partners to invest in scholarships that bridge the existing financial aid gap. Campaign investment in financial aid will allow Rensselaer to attract and retain the students most likely to thrive in our unique academic environment.
HELP US BRIDGE THE GAP
Support of the Bridging the Gap priority will help the 43% of our current students whose need exceeds aid by $31,576,288 per year get the support they need as they complete their education and join the powerful network of more than 100,000 Rensselaer alumni across the globe.
TALENTED AND DIVERSE
After graduation, Rensselaer students join a network of successful and engaged alumni across the country and around the globe.
