Cornell College Endowed Scholarships

Keeping a Cornell education affordable is among the college’s highest priorities: over 96% of our students receive some kind of financial assistance. This commitment to students and their families continues to earn Cornell rankings as a “best buy” college. Endowed scholarship funds are vital sources of assistance for many of our students. Cornell is extremely thankful that generous donors have had the foresight to establish endowed scholarships to underwrite the educational expenses of our students. Below is a list of recently established endowed scholarships, as well as a listing of the scholarships that benefited 287 students during the last academic year. For a complete list of all endowed scholarship funds, please contact the Office of Alumni and College Advancement.
