KCRG covers Iowa Promise Scholarship

KCRG-TV9 featured Cornell College in a story, “Cornell College scholarship catching interest of more Iowans wanting to get affordable private education,” which aired the morning of April 6, 2021.

The piece explains the college’s revamped Iowa Promise Scholarship. In October of 2020, Cornell College increased its Iowa Promise Scholarship to offer a minimum of $30,000 to all first-time students from the state of Iowa who are accepted for admission. 

This move puts Cornell College’s cost of attendance in line with Iowa’s three state universities and offers the opportunity for more Iowans to choose an affordable private college education. Used in collaboration with the Iowa Tuition Grant—state aid that is available only to students attending private colleges—the cost of attendance is comparable to all three institutions.
