Cornell Club of London
Summer Scholarship Fund
Would you like to spend a Summer vacation studying at a top US University?
The UK based Alumni of Cornell University, who make up the Cornell Club of London, are offering a scholarship for UK undergraduate students to study in the USA.
The successful applicant will receive a scholarship to cover the major costs of attending Cornell's Summer Session where a wide range of courses are on offer, ranging from electronic art, to astronomy, to animal husbandry. You will participate in the exciting educational, cultural and sports facilities of the 745 acre campus, studying with students from all over the USA.
Cornell is a world class Ivy League university with, typically, wonderful summer weather in a rural campus of outstanding natural beauty, yet only a few hours from New York City. Previous scholarship winners have described their Cornell Summer as a life changing experience. You should note that preference is given to candidates with limited, or no, US experience.
Cornell's summer session attracts students of all ages and from all over the U.S. - and further afield. Cornell-registered students choose summer school to make up extra courses; high school and adult students come for the special programmes arranged for them. And international students - of whom the Cornell Club of London Scholarship holder will be one - choose Cornell to gain some understanding of the U.S. university system, joining in the regular courses offered for credit to U.S. students.
The six week summer session runs from June to August, including an exam period at the end of the session. The Scholarship winner will be invited to choose two courses (up to nine credits) from any discipline, except special programmes and physical education courses; The Summer Session catalogue will be issued in early March, and advice will be available to assist the Scholarship winner to select appropriate courses and process the summer school application.
