The Renaissance & Global Scholarship is a full-tuition, four-year scholarship to the University of Rochester. Renaissance & Global Scholars are an exceptional group of more than 80 students who come to Rochester from across the United States and all around the world: Nebraska, Illinois, Sudan, Egypt, Iraq, and Papua New Guinea, to name a few. Not only are they academic all-stars, but they also have unique backgrounds that add to the diversity of our student body and extraordinary life experiences that enhance the classes in which they are enrolled.
Guided by the pillars of Academic Curiosity and Excellence and Social Awareness and Involvement, these students become leaders in their academic fields and campus organizations. The Scholars are involved extensively in campus activities and community service.
