Medalist Day Fall 2015

September 12, 2015

Rensselaer Medalist Day

For more than 90 years, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, in conjunction with high schools around the world, has awarded the Rensselaer Medal to promising secondary school students who have distinguished themselves in mathematics and science. The Medal was first presented in 1916 with two purposes: to recognize the superlative academic achievement of young men and women, and to motivate students toward careers in science, engineering, and technology. This merit scholarship, with a minimum value of $15,000 per year, is guaranteed for four years (five years for the Bachelor of Architecture program or the Co-Terminal Program) for each medalist who is accepted and enrolls at Rensselaer.

Medalist Day is an event dedicated to Medal winners and their families, during which they are encouraged to explore the Rensselaer campus and learn about current teachings and research. On Saturday, September 12th, Professors Alexandra Rempel and Jonas Braasch presented the School of Architecture’s academic programs, and Bachelor of Architecture students held a conversational Q&A session with Medalists, followed by tours of the Greene building for these prospective students and their families.
