Check Out This Real-life Scenario
As a high school senior in Baltimore, Md., John Hill Shaw III '67 wanted to attend Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, but he believed his dream would be derailed by a "lack of financial support." Regardless, he sent in his application—and RPI responded with a full-tuition scholarship and enough financial aid to cover his other expenses.
Today, Shaw is returning the favor by remembering Rensselaer with a bequest in his will.
A gift like this is as easy as passing along Rensselaer's suggested bequest language to your attorney.
