International Fellowship Awardees
RIT students have had a banner year in securing awards from the prestigious Fulbright U.S. Student Program. RIT has a record four Fulbright finalists plus three alternates for the 2021-2022 academic year. Students from the Kate Gleason College of Engineering, College of Science, College of Health Sciences and Technology, College of Liberal Arts, and School of Individualized Study will travel to Germany, Nigeria, and Turkey for immersive global learning experiences in the coming months. Read more about the Fulbright finalists in this article.
RIT expects all students to have health insurance. Health insurance coverage ensures that your student receives the appropriate medical care in the event of an injury or illness that requires prescription medication, a referral to a specialist, or even hospitalization. Health insurance may be obtained through the university, or through family or individual policies.
If your student will use a family plan, please contact the company to determine what coverage your student has in Rochester, as many companies have limited out-of-network coverage. If your student currently has insurance through a Medicaid based plan, please know that most Medicaid based insurance plans only provide emergency level coverage outside of the area they are issued in. If your student will not be on a family plan, RIT offers a robust student health insurance plan with an expansive provider network across the U.S. and out-of-network benefits.
