Cornell College Freeway Scholarship covered by Forbes

Cornell College recently announced its new Freeway Scholarship, and the news was covered by Forbes.

The article has been shared by numerous people and organizations on social media.

The Cornell College Freeway Scholarship is rolling out for first-year students from Wisconsin, Illinois, Missouri, Minnesota, and Nebraska who are applying now for the 2022-23 school year. This scholarship puts Cornell’s cost of attendance very close to the flagship public universities in those states. In fact, Cornell is within $3,250 of the average of those five colleges.

The Freeway Scholarship follows up last year’s revamped Cornell College Iowa Promise Scholarship. In October of 2020, the college offered $30,000 to all admitted Iowa students, which put Cornell’s cost of attendance in line with Iowa’s three state universities. The positive response from that scholarship encouraged the college to expand the opportunity to students in additional states.
