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 $2.3 million in scholarships to eligible higher education institutions, benefiting more than 2,650 students.

The 2024 PATH Scholarship application is now open. 

The application deadline for institutions in the United States is May 24, 2024. For eligible institutions in Australia, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Ireland, Lebanon, Mexico, and the United Kingdom, the deadline has been extended to July 30, 2024.


The following types of higher education institutions are invited to apply for a 2024 PATH Scholarship award:

  • In the U.S., public four-year institutions that are eligible to participate in the Federal Title IV Student aid programs as defined by the National Center of Education Statistics (NCES).
