Rensselaer is pleased to provide currently enrolled students a comprehensive scholarship matching tool called Scholarship Universe (SU). Using SU will help find the best matches for named Rensselaer endowed awards, as well as external scholarship opportunities.
By logging into Scholarship Universe using your RSC credentials, much of your demographic and academic data will be prepopulated. You will be presented with outside scholarship opportunities for which you meet the basic matching criteria. You will see the total amount in these various opportunities, and you can choose which application(s) you want to complete.
