Welcome to the Cornell Club of Greater Philadelphia!



The Cornell Club of Greater Philadelphia's Rumsey Scholarship Fund

The Cornell Club of Greater Philadelphia is one of the most active local alumni clubs as far as awarding scholarships. 

The Club's George Rumsey Scholarship Fund was established in 1963 with a legacy of $100,000.00 from George Rumsey, a noted industrialist and a member of the Class 1896. Since 1998, the fund has been managed by the Cornell Long Term Investment Pool and has a current value over $500,000.  Each year the Club awards Philadelphia-area students scholarships ranging from $500 to $1,000 for each year of attendance at Cornell. The scholarships are based on financial need information obtained from Cornell.

We encourage you to make tax deductible contributions to the Rumsey Scholarship Fund. Your contributions to this fund support the mission of the Club, show commitment to the Greater Philadelphia region, enhanced alumni relations and demonstrate to the student recipients the long term commitment that our alumni have to Cornell. The scholarships are always gratefully received and acknowledged by the students. Club members interested in participating in the selection process are invited to attend the annual selection meeting in June.

"Cornell Club of Greater Philadelphia-Rumsey Scholarship Fund"

Thank you.

Cornell Alumni Admissions Ambassador Network (CAAAN)

Do you remember when you applied to Cornell? Did you meet with an alumnus from your area?

CAAAN is a group of alumni who serve as ambassadors for Cornell and meet with prospective students to help personalize the admissions process. These local alumni ambassadors also may staff college fairs and host local receptions for admitted and entering students. CAAAN is always looking for new alumni volunteers.

If you are interested in learning more, visit the CAAAN website, or contact Amy Norr or Christine Miller Whaley directly with any questions.
