David and Lucy Levy established The Catherine “Cat” Levy Off-Campus Scholarship Fund in memory of their daughter, Catherine “Cat” Levy, a member of the Class of 1998. Cat, an art major with a minor in art history and an emphasis in pottery, was an accomplished artist. She planned to open a ceramics shop and pottery studio. She was also active in the production and technical crews of Cornell stage productions and was a member of the Chess and Games Club.

Eligibility requirements

If you plan to take a Cornell off-campus studies course or program taught by Cornell faculty, you may be eligible for the Levy Scholarship. The International Studies Oversight Committee (ISOC) determines if the Levy Scholarship is the appropriate funding source and the award amount based off of your scholarship application materials.

The ISOC considers the following criteria when determining your eligibility:

  • The Cornell course or program is taught by Cornell faculty
  • You must be in good academic and disciplinary standing with the College
  • Your level of financial need
  • Although not required, a preference will be shown towards you if you are concentrating your studies in the areas of art, English, or theatre
  • You cannot have already received a Levy Scholarship
