The Ewing Family Service Awards

Ewing Award graphic

The Ewing Family Service Awards was established in 2015 with the intention to support Cornell's commitment to promote innovation in community-engaged and real-world learning. These awards, of up to $2000 per project, hope to support and foster student, faculty and administrative leadership and social responsibility within the Cornell campus community in much the same way that other programs foster public service with the community beyond the campus.
