Monmouth & Ocean Cornellians,
You can help local Cornell students...and celebrate Cornell's Giving Day (TOMORROW, MARCH 20)... here's how.
Each year the Cornell Club of Monmouth & Ocean Counties awards one or two $1,500 scholarships to Cornell students from our area who are entering their senior year. Our criteria are simple: the student has large self-help need, and despite of this burden, has done well academically in their first three years. The award lowers their senior year loan.
We have made this scholarship award for over 25 years to an energetic, highly motivated, and diverse group of students from our area. They have been extremely appreciative of the award, especially since it comes directly from local Cornellians. Two samples from their thank you notes convey our impact:
"The scholarship helps ease the burden on my family after all the sacrifices my mother has made for both my brother and me"
"One day I hope to pay it forward and help support future students the way you have supported me"
We raise money from two sources:
- Raffles at each of our twice a year speaker events
- Individual donations (just like an annual fund donation, your donations are tax deductible, qualify for gift matching if you have it)

Please consider supporting us with a gift of any size -- it all counts. We were able to make two awards this year, and we'd like to be able to do that every year!
This Giving Day, we hope to raise at least $600 from 12 or more donors. Will you help us?
It is easy -- TOMORROW (12:01am to 11:59pm) just click here
