Cornell University Greek Awards and Scholarships

Cornell Tradition Fellowships are awarded to undergraduates who demonstrate a commitment to work and service. Approximately 500 fellowships are awarded each year. Fellowships include the possibility of a $4,000 loan replacement, $3,500 support account, wage subsidy, and other financial benefits. Current Cornell students, who were not chosen as entering freshmen to be in the Tradition program, may apply in the spring of their freshman/sophomore/junior year to be admitted into the program at the beginning of the next academic year. Specific fraternity or sorority Tradition Fellowships may already be filled by current house members. However, Greek affiliated students are still eligible to receive other open Tradition fellowships.

Fraternity and Sorority Scholarship Awards were established in 1998 through Cornell's Scholarship Challenge Campaign by John S. Dyson '65. The awards are need based and intended for Greek undergraduates who demonstrate leadership qualities or hold a leadership position in their respective chapter. Students who qualify for grant and work-study through the Cornell Financial Aid Office and demonstrate a significant leadership role in their chapter are eligible. In the event a student meeting the financial-aid criteria cannot be identified in the group of nominees, another deserving member of the chapter who meets the necessary requirements may be selected to receive the scholarship. Awards are for the following year and graduating seniors are not eligible to apply.

The John S. Dyson Citizenship Award was established in 2001 in honor of Trustee Emeritus John S. Dyson '65, a distinguished Cornell University alumnus of Alpha Delta Phi Fraternity, who has shown an outstanding commitment to the fraternity and sorority system. Since his undergraduate years, John has demonstrated true dedication and tremendous generosity toward fostering a fraternity and sorority experience that continues to enrich students' lives. The award is given annually as a part of the A.D. White Leadership Conference to a student within the Cornell University fraternity and sorority community who has exemplified exceptional leadership within the Greek community, and who has demonstrated a strong commitment to community service, philanthropy, scholarship, and citizenship.
