Class of '55 AwardThe Class of 1955 Student Off-Campus Study Fund was established by the class of 1955 in honor of their 50th reunion. The class of 1955 acknowledges that off-campus study opportunities are increasingly sought after by students today, providing them with a broader view of the world and unique, hands-on experiences that they need to distinguish themselves to future employers and to succeed.
The Class of 1955 Student Off-Campus Study Fund provides support for Cornell students who are studying off-campus. Awards will be based on the student's academic standing, a statement of purpose, a faculty recommendation and the cost of the off-campus program. Students participating in off-campus internships sponsored by the Berry Center, Dimensions or the Cornell Fellows program are not eligible to apply. Students who have already received a Class of '55 award will not be eligible to re-apply.
Questions about study abroad options should be addressed to the Office of International and Off-Campus Studies. Applications and recommendation letters will be reviewed by ISOC members.
The deadline for applications and recommendations for off-campus study and scholarships is December 3.
If you have any questions about the award process, please contact Cassandra Krumbholz (x4385) in the Office of International and Off-Campus Studies.
