As a student who receives financial aid, like many of the students on campus, I have been given countless opportunities to improve myself and get the most out of academics and student programs and activities. Your support allows me to receive the best education I can.Michael Candels ’17
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. Rensselaer students often need assistance in meeting the cost of a Rensselaer education, and you can help.
Support for scholarship helps keep a Rensselaer education accessible to each one of our talented students. By making your gift to one of our Rensselaer Annual Fund Scholarship Programs, you have a real hand in transforming the life of a student, who in turn, will help change the world.
Gifts toward scholarship help us attract and retain the brightest students, while at the same time, make a difference in their lives.
There are a variety of ways in which you can support students at Rensselaer, including Rensselaer Annual Fund Scholars, the Rensselaer Annual Fund Assistance Grant, and the Patroon Scholars Program of the Rensselaer Annual Fund. Whether you choose to make your gift in support of multiple students, or create the type of relationship between the sponsor and student that lasts a lifetime, you can truly impact the lives of our students in so many ways.
As a proud supporter of Rensselaer, the opportunity to help deserving students to obtain an education from Rensselaer inspired me to support the Patroon Scholars Program of the Rensselaer Annual Fund. Scholarship support is an excellent way to have your contribution directly affect the life of a deserving student. My wife and I value the opportunity to extend the Rensselaer experience to people who otherwise might not be able to do so.T.J. Wojnar Jr. ’80, Patroon Scholars Program chair and donor
