On Thursday March 14th, #GivingDay2024, please consider giving to the Sarasota-Manatee Cornell Club Scholarship Fund, an endowed fund used to supplement financial aid provided by Cornell for students from Sarasota and Manatee counties who need assistance.

Sixteen students from the local area currently attend Cornell, two graduate students and 14 undergraduates. They are an impressive group with a wide array of interests and academic pursuits. Last year, due to the generous support of local alumni such as yourself, six local students were able to receive scholarships totaling $19,261.

Local students need our help. It costs over $88,000 for out-of-state students to attend Cornell in 2023-2024. The median household income in Sarasota and Manatee counties is $69,490 and $64,964 respectively. Our scholarship fund really does make a difference whether some students can afford to attend Cornell.

Some quotes from recent scholarship recipients:

“This scholarship…does the amazing work of lightening my tuition-related financial burdens and grants me the luxury of extra time I can now place into my variegated studies and activities at Cornell. …I look forward to joining the alumni at the Cornell Club of Sarasota-Manatee and being able to give back to future students in need.”

“So many of the things that make college a limitless opportunity for students like me are only available with the assistance you provide. What's more is how much it means to receive this vote of confidence from a group of like-minded scholars from my hometown. You are not some nameless non-profit that I submitted an essay to, but an organization that I am actively uplifted by."

"Your generous donation...has helped make my undergraduate experience possible, and I am truly thankful."

"I am ecstatic to study here at Cornell and it wouldn't be the same without your scholarship."

There is no better day to give than on Cornell Giving Day along with our Big Red Family! Please consider our local student scholarship fund as you make your contributions to keep Cornell's Traditions alive and thriving.
