Our Annual Celebration of Support
The 2013 Celebration of Support brought together alumni, friends, and the Institute community to celebrate the generous philanthropy of our loyal donors. The event was held in the Samuel F. Heffner Jr. ’56 Alumni House Great Room on April 12, 2013, and featured exhibits by student groups who are all doing their part to help solve the Global Challenges facing us today. The Celebration of Support honors the vision of our donors, and the tremendous impact their gifts have on faculty and students at Rensselaer.

Approximately 95 percent of our undergraduate students receive some form of financial aid, and scholarship support is often a key component of that aid. There are over 300 endowed scholarships and over 40 endowed fellowships, while the Patroon Scholars Program supports students through the Rensselaer Annual Fund. Support for faculty strengthens Rensselaer at its core, and in turn, attracts world-class students.
