REPOST: Learning Strategies Center (LSC) Summer Session Scholarship
Are you planning on taking courses at Cornell this summer?
You may qualify for the LSC Summer Scholarship to cover full tuition expenses!
The LSC Scholarship Program is intended to provide financial assistance to undergraduate students who:
- are behind in credits for on-time graduation,
- are behind on affiliation requirements, or
- have been advised to moderate their course load.
Students must be nominated for the scholarship and in good standing in their college. Successful applicants must also receive grant aid and be in compliance with all other financial aid eligibility requirements. Only a limited number of scholarships are available; therefore, first preference will be given to seniors who need the assistance to graduate and to sophomores who need the assistance to affiliate.
If you believe you qualify, here are the steps to completing the LSC Scholarship Application Process:
1. You must qualify for grant aid and be in compliance with all other financial aid requirements. For information on aid and compliance, see LSC Scholarship Guidelines.
2. Complete the LSC Scholarship online application and schedule a meeting with Jami P. Joyner (stop by 146 Olin Hall to schedule an appointment) before March 8 at 12 Noon.
- You will need to request an official copy of your transcripts.
- Complete LSC Scholarship online application and either upload a copy of your transcript to the application or bring it to the meeting.
*If you need a hardcopy of the online application, please come to 146 Olin Hall to pick up a copy.
NOTE: Due to the varying cost of summer courses, students selected to receive the LSC scholarship may receive financial support to cover most, but not all, of the tuition expenses associated with their approved summer coursework.

REPOST: Dyson Minor for Engineers
Declaration of Intent to Minor due March 15th!
Enhance your engineering education and expand your career opportunities! To qualify, students may complete a Declaration of Intent to Minor in the Dyson Business Minor for Engineers (DBME) starting in their freshmen year but must declare their intent to minor by the end of their sixth semester. The declaration is intended to signal the interest and INTENT of an Engineering student to pursue the DBME offered in the Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management. The declaration can be filed BEFORE the pre-requisites as long as the applicant plans to take the pre-requisites within the next two semesters. Once the declaration of INTENT is registered in the DBME database, students receive notification and are officially considered part of the program. Students declaring the INTENT to Minor benefit in a variety of ways:
- Have preference in the AEM courses that are offered in the minor as long as they follow the rules of pre-enrollment (look for information in early April).
- Receive invitations to special extracurricular events related to business and engineering.
- Have access to advice and guidance on the minor.
- Learn about new offerings and/or new optional courses.
