Prestigious Fellowships

If you have a GPA of 3.5 or higher, you may be eligible for one or more prestigious fellowships. In addition to an outstanding academic record, prestigious fellowship applicants should have made their mark in one or more other ways.

Substantial intellectual or creative projects or evidence of leadership or public service, and strong, detailed faculty letters of recommendation are essential to compete for these awards. Many of these fellowships require official endorsement from Cornell, which entails an additional on-campus selection process.
