Cornell University is committed to access and opportunity, and our goal is to remove financial barriers so that students can invest in a Cornell education. All financial aid offered through Cornell is need-based. Our financial aid staff work extensively to help families meet their financial need. Cornell does not award scholarships that are based solely on academic performance, athletic ability, or any other type of special ability or merit.
