We are a community of 15,000 alumni, students, and parents celebrating the spirit of Cornell University in the Bay Area. There are many ways to get involved and to connect with your fellow Cornellians. Attend one of our events, volunteer with us, or join us in helping to drive scholarship dollars for students attending Cornell.

Cornell NorCal gives back to the community through two Cornell endowed scholarships—the Ira B. Degenhardt Tradition Fellowship and the Peter E. Lee Tradition Fellowship—both of which are managed by Cornell University. With alumni support, we fundraise and make contributions to these scholarship funds on a regular basis. These funds allow us to award Tradition Fellowships to two deserving students from the Bay Area for each year of their four-year tenure at Cornell.
