Help Students With Your Gift to Scholarship or Financial Aid

Gifts in support of students help with areas of greatest need, scholarship, financial aid, and funding for students experiencing financial hardship. 

 

Today, you can make a difference by making a gift to an area of greatest need:

 

  • Rensselaer Annual Fund (where the need is greatest): The Rensselaer Annual Fund helps to provide a world-class educational experience to our students.  It is more important than ever to support them in order to meet the nation’s growing need for scientific and technical talent. Tuition covers just 75 percent of the cost of educating our students. Your gift makes up the difference between what families pay and the cost of the Rensselaer experience, and helps us invest in their future right now.
  • Annual Fund Scholars Program: One of the most personal and lasting ways to make a difference in the lives of Rensselaer students is with a gift of scholarship support. 
  • Student Relief Fund: This fund support current undergraduate students who are experiencing financial hardship.

 

By showing your support, you are also joining a community of alumni, parents, and friends who are making a powerful and immediate impact on the lives of students and future graduates!
