Rensselaer Medalists

Congratulations on being named a Rensselaer Medalist! We look forward to reviewing your application to Rensselaer. 

You may use either of the applications we accept (the Common Application or Universal College Application) to apply, and as a Medalist, your application fee is waived. All other requirements are the same as for all incoming freshman applications.

Every year, we accept hundreds of Medalists into our freshman class; however, please note that being named a Medalist is not an automatic acceptance to Rensselaer. 

To receive the Medal Scholarship, you must apply, be accepted, and enroll at Rensselaer. Please be sure to mention on your application that you are a Medalist.

Important Information

Medalist Scholarship: As a Medalist, should you apply, be accepted, and enroll at Rensselaer, you will receive a merit scholarship with a minimum value of $15,000 per year. This award is guaranteed to be applied to your tuition for each year of your undergraduate study at Rensselaer. As a Medalist, if you enroll in our School of Architecture, your scholarship will be extended to cover the fifth year of the program. If you enroll in our Co-Terminal Program, your scholarship will be extended to cover the fifth year of study.

Accelerated Programs: As a Medalist, if you enroll in either our Physician-Scientist Program or one of our Accelerated Law Programs, your Medal Scholarship will only apply to the financial aid package you receive for the three years you are studying on Rensselaer’s campus.

Rensselaer Medallion: As a Medalist, if you enroll at Rensselaer, you will receive your Medallion at Honors Convocation in the fall of your freshman year.

Medal Selection: Medalists are chosen by each individual participating high school. Rensselaer provides general guidelines for selecting a Medalist, but the ultimate decision belongs to the high school. Each high school selects their Medalist differently, so contact your guidance office to see if your high school participates and what their selection process entails.
