Class Gift
The Class of 2017 gift has established the Student Relief Fund, a distinctive opportunity to support future students who face financial hardship that threatens their academic progress during their time at Rensselaer. The fund is intended to provide a one-time grant to matriculated undergraduate students in immediate need. To date, through class ring sales and Class of 2017 fundraising efforts, the fund currently has over $12,000 and will be available for use at the start of the fall 2017 semester.

Class of 2017 members can still contribute here. Seniors who contribute $100 or more by June 30th will become members of the prestigious Annual Patroon Society at Rensselaer. Their names will appear on the Class of 2017 Patroons plaque that will hang in the Union. As leaders among their peers, Patroons will receive invitations to exclusive events and special communications from the Institute.
