Corinna DiStefano ’38, G’39: The Gift of Opportunity
During her long career as a high school guidance counselor, the late Corinna DiStefano ’38, G’39 brought out the best in the students she advised—seeking to help each one earn a college education as a path to personal success. Attending Syracuse University on a scholarship, she knew firsthand the financial barriers to earning a college degree.
DiStefano acted on her strong belief that higher education should be accessible to all students by designating a portion of her estate to establish the Corinna DiStefano Opportunity Grant at Syracuse University. The interest on the funds she entrusted to Syracuse is being used each year to provide tuition for a deserving undergraduate student who shows good potential for college success and demonstrates financial need.
