LSC Winter Scholarships Available

The primary objective of the Learning Strategies Center (LSC) Scholarship is to enable current full-time undergraduate students to graduate on schedule by providing financial support to attend Summer or Winter Session at Cornell.  Although many students wish to attend Summer or Winter Session, limited funding restricts us to awarding scholarships to eligible applicants who receive Cornell grant aid and demonstrate both an academic and financial need. LSC Scholarships are for Cornell courses only, and cover the cost of tuition.

Priority for scholarships is given in the following order:

  1. Seniors who need to fulfill requirements for graduation.
  2. Upper-class students who did not successfully complete a core course.
  3. Students who need Summer or Winter Session credits to place them on schedule for graduation.
  4. Students who have been encouraged to moderate their course load by an advisor due to extenuating circumstances.
  5. Supporting students’ participation in a broad range of academic enrichment opportunities provided by Cornell.

If you wish to be nominated you must meet with, and receive approval from, the Undergraduate Major Coordinator (Emily) for your department.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The LSC Scholarship is not granted for academic acceleration.

Earn a Minor in Design Strategy

The Department of Design + Environmental Analysis offers a minor in Design Strategy. This minor provides students with an understanding of design thinking and practice through the production of designed artifacts. The Design Strategy minor may be of particular interest to students from Information Science, Computer Science, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and other Engineering departments who are seeking design studies that compliment and may partly overlap with their technical understanding. The Design Strategy minor is meant to help prepare students to design more holistically in response to today’s complex challenges and opportunities.

Learn more about the Design Strategy minor at https://www.human.cornell.edu/dea/academics/undergraduate/minors/design
