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. For millions of students, financial distress can lead to dropping out of school without completing a degree. As COVID-19 disrupted the education journey of learners globally, the PATH Scholarship was created to help higher education institutions support students experiencing economic hardship.
Since its founding, the PATH Scholarship - now offered by the Ellucian Foundation - has provided more than $1 million in scholarships to eligible higher education institutions, benefiting more than 1,100 students.
The 2022 PATH Scholarship is now closed for applications. Information on the 2023 PATH Scholarship will be available in spring 2023.
