Outside Scholarships

 

Outside scholarships or tuition benefits will reduce the self-help component (loans and work) of the undergraduate financial aid package, but will not reduce the family contribution. If all the self-help in the award is cancelled, in some cases, the Cornell Grant may need to be reduced or cancelled as well.

 

Any resources raised through crowdsourcing will be treated as outside scholarship funds and will not reduce the family contribution.

Scholarships will be divided equally between fall and spring semesters, unless otherwise indicated in writing by the donor. It’s important to notify the Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment of any outside scholarships the student receives, so the appropriate adjustments can be made.

 

Outside scholarship checks that are made payable to the student should be endorsed on the back of the check as follows:

 

Payable to Cornell University

"Student Signature"

 

Please send all scholarship checks (originals, not copies) to:

 

Cornell University
Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment
Scholarship Division
P.O. Box 752
Ithaca, NY 14851
