Academic Scholarship and Awards

The Adelphic Cornell Educational Fund  (ACEF) makes cash awards each semester (usually at Homecoming and at Spring Initiation) to recognize exemplary scholarship.  Funded by ADPhi Members and ACEF donors like you.  Won't you help by making your contribution today?

Applications for Academic Awards are due 2 weeks in advance of the Semi-annual ACEF meeting in Ithaca. Late applications, if considered, risk rejection or a reduced award amount.

Applicants, (both full members and pledged members) should register their undergraduate membership with the ACEF
(go to Member & Volunteer Forms).  Unregistered applicants risk having their applications rejected.

Applying for an award is as simple as writing a short letter, getting independent verification of a) good standing, b) good citzenship, and c) be current on your Chapter account, and then furnishing an official transcript of your grades from Cornell.

Each semester, as many as 10 awards of up to $500 each will be made for brothers having the highest GPAs in the House.

The Academic Awards are made in memory of Theodore H. Booth '25 and James T. Lewis '27.

An additional award is made in the fall, to the Newly Initiated Brother (NIB) with the highest Spring Semester GPA, in memory and honor of Lt. R. Bruce Hart '84.
