The Founders Award for Excellence was established in 1994 to honor students who embody qualities of creativity, discovery, leadership, and the values of pride and responsibility at Rensselaer. The award consists of a special certificate, recognition by faculty, staff, and peers at the Honors Convocation ceremony, and a cash prize. This year we honored approximately 70 excellent students from the Troy and Hartford campuses - about one percent of our student population.

This year's Biomedical Engineers Founders Award winners include: Andreas Christensen, Anne Cropp, Holly Dupuis, Lamya Karim, Kevin Keating, Daniel Lavigne, Eileen Lynch, Bryan McMahon, Christina Provenza, Nicholas Zaccor, Brandon Graham, Courtney Dumont, and Rebecca (MacDonald) Wachs.
