The Progress, Accomplishment, Thriving, Hope (PATH) Scholarship was established in 2020 by Ellucian, the leading technology solutions provider for higher education.
Education has the power to transform lives; however, for millions of students, financial distress can lead to dropping out of school without completing a degree. The PATH Scholarship was created to help higher education institutions support their students who may be experiencing economic hardship.
Since its founding, the PATH Scholarship - now offered by the Ellucian Foundation - has provided more than $2 million in scholarships to eligible higher education institutions, benefiting more than 2,000 students.
The 2023 PATH Scholarship is now closed for applications. The 2024 PATH Scholarship will open for applications in April 2024.
