Caesar Ferrari Recipient of the Rensselaer Medal and Scholarship


(June 1, 2017) Ichabod Crane High School is pleased to announce junior Caesar Ferrari is the recipient of the annual Rensselaer Medal at ICHS.

For more than 90 years, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has awarded the Rensselaer Medal to promising high school juniors who have distinguished themselves in mathematics and science. The Medal was first presented in 1916 with two purposes: to recognize the superlative academic achievement of young men and women, and to motivate students toward careers in science, engineering and technology. One Rensselaer Medal is offered at each of more than 2900 participating secondary schools throughout North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia.

To be honored with the Medal, a student must be a member of the junior class, an outstanding student in mathematics and science and also demonstrate potential for success in a challenging academic setting.

Each medalist who is accepted and subsequently enrolls at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute receives a special Medal Scholarship which is $100,000 ($25,000 annually).
