The Learning Strategies Center (LSC) is Cornell’s central academic support office for our undergraduate population. Their goal is to provide students with tools and resources to support their efforts to become more successful and independent learners. One such resource is the LSC Scholarship. The primary objective of the scholarship is to provide financial support to enable on time completion of graduation requirements for undergraduate students.

The scholarship covers the cost of tuition for Cornell courses listed on the Continuing Education website. To qualify, students must receive Cornell grant aid. Requests for winter session begin in October and summer session in February. Students are notified by their respective college and/or the LSC website when the scholarship application opens.

Each college has an assigned nominator who submits requests to the LSC office. Contact cals-studentservices [at] or 607-255-2257 for more information.
