The Charles E. Ellis Grant and Scholarship Fund for Girls is available to students in grades 9-12 who reside in Philadelphia full-time.
Additionally, students must meet the following criteria:
- Live in a household where one or both parents are absent or one parent is disabled
- Have grades of C or better in major subjects
- Have a gross family income that does not exceed the amounts set by the foundation
Families are responsible for completing all paperwork and meeting established deadlines. The maximum award amount for private school students is currently $7,000. The award is renewable each year as long as the family continues to qualify financially and all paperwork is complete by the stated deadlines. Applications are available beginning in January.
