Endowment Impact


Cornell's endowment funds every aspect of the college, from general support of operating expenses, to scholarships for students and academic and co-curricular programs. The impact of Cornell's endowment can be seen in the examples of two Cornellians whose lives have been changed by the gift of endowed scholarships.

“Cornell has met all of my high school dreams of what college could be. The support of my professors is unparalleled. My classmates challenge me and are just as motivated as I am to get the most out of every course. Cornell has prepared me to pursue all of the things I only ever wistfully dreamed of doing. I am deeply grateful for the support of the Dr. L.E. and Alice Caroline Bigger Endowed Scholarship.”
