The power to make a difference in the lives of our students is fully realized through the Patroon Scholars Program. With a gift of $10,000 per year for four years (or five if the student is in the School of Architecture), you can change lives by easing the financial burden for a student. Your gift will sponsor an individual student, or students, selected by the Office of Financial Aid during their term of study at Rensselaer.
Participants in these programs are encouraged to meet their students throughout the year, particularly at the annual Celebration of Support, and many have developed lasting relationships over the years. In addition to providing counsel to students, Patroon Scholar donors help to instill a culture of philanthropy at Rensselaer and inspire the next generation to give.
