The Andrew A. Persily memorial fund was established in 1984 by Tau Delta Phi fraternity brothers Bill Kaufman and Donald Weiss. Over 140 individuals have contributed to the fund. Today, its market has surpassed $480,000. In 2007, we renamed the fund The Nancy and Andrew Persily Scholarship Fund to honor both Nancy and Andrew Persily's commitment to each other, to Cornell, and to higher education.

The Persily family is grateful to our friends and family who support the scholarship fund and Nancy and Andy's commitment to Cornell.
