Grants and Scholarships

There are a number of grants and scholarships available to Cornell undergraduate students. Keep in mind that:

  • No merit aid or athletic scholarships are awarded at Cornell; all grant aid is need-based.
  • There is no minimum or maximum amount of gift aid that can be awarded.
  • Outside scholarships replace loan or work components of the aid package, but do not reduce the parent contribution.
  • A FAFSA financial aid form must be completed to be eligible for federal grants.
