The RAA Scholarship Fund

The RAA has continued its strong tradition of support to the Institute, our alumni, and current students, by launching a $1 million student scholarship initiative. To date, nearly $300,000 has been raised to support the scholarship program, with the goal of raising the $1 million total by December 2017. President Shirley Ann Jackson and RAA President Theresa Kozikowski ’85, ’86G ceremoniously signed the endowed agreement in May 2016, commencing an effort where alumni may directly assist today’s students – our future alumni.

The fund, established with a gift of $250,000 from the RAA, will be used to financially support scholarships for worthy and needy undergraduate students at Rensselaer. Anyone may contribute to the scholarship fund in support of students by visiting the “Give Now” page. Select “Choose from Institute Priorities and Schools,” and then scroll to the “Other” section and select “Rensselaer Alumni Association Scholarship.” (Remember, you can maximize the impact of your gift if you work for a company with a corporate match gift program.)
