Corporate and Foundation Relations

The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute strives to serve as the central location across all university portfolios, which cultivates and strengthens mutually beneficial relationships between the Institute and local, national, and international corporations and foundations.  

We are well-poised to assist corporations and foundations with navigating through our interdisciplinary programs and departments, to ensure your priorities are best matched with one of our strategic initiatives.  We can also offer opportunities for engagement via campus visits, and student and alumni events and programming.  

For Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute faculty and administration, we are available to assist with the identification of funding sources and the coordination of proposals.  By working closely with the Office for Research, Research Administration and Finance, and our faculty and staff, we will connect you with the appropriate sources of external funding that will result in a holistic partnership, and continuously support “the application of science to the common purposes of life.”
