Financial aid for Human Ecology undergraduates helps Cornell sustain its need-blind promise and removes financial barriers for the most deserving students. The legacy and impact of a scholarship gift is profound and spans generations, opening doors for highly qualified students who, absent this funding, would not be able to enroll.


Endowed Scholarship Challenge Match

President Martha Pollack has pledged a 1:2 match for endowed scholarship commitments of $250,000 or more. Graduates of the last twenty years can leverage the 1:2 match with commitments of $150,000 or more.


As a top-tier research institution, our ability to recruit and support the most promising doctoral candidates hinges on the funding we offer. This naming-level investment offers an opportunity to directly support a student and strengthen activities at the heart of our academic mission, ensuring that we produce the most promising scholars and teachers.


Sustained support for research, internships, and other experiences outside the classroom will provide more opportunities for students to apply their learning, investigate career options, and develop their professional network. Stipends for students seeking funding for summer research and real-world learning experiences are currently limited. Donors to these programs strengthen a critical learning outcome of our academic program while supporting our students’ individual life and career aspirations.
