Recognizing Academic Achievement and Student Leadership.
The NRS Scholarship program is made possible through the generosity of RIT's Nathaniel Rochester Society donors. This unique merit scholarship was created in 1991 to recognize RIT undergraduate students for their outstanding achievement. The program now encompasses over 26 separate scholarships and is funded through hundreds of annual leadership donations. Over 2,500 students have benefited from the gifts made by NRS members over the last 22 years.

STUDENTS! Over $150,000 in scholarship dollars available!
