Ellucian Foundation Awards $500,000 in PATH Scholarships

The Ellucian Foundation, the charitable arm of the Ellucian higher education technology solutions company, has announced its 2022 award of $500,000 in PATH (Progress, Accomplishment, Thriving, and Hope) scholarships to 35 historically Black colleges and universities and minority-serving institutions across the United States. The grants will be used to help students who are struggling financially stay on track to graduate.

The scholarships were awarded by an independent judging committee in block grants of between $10,000 and $25,000 per institution and up to $1,500 per student. Money can be used for tuition, housing, food and other needs, with limited exceptions. Not-for-profit institutions outside the U.S. were also invited to apply, and those awards will be announced later.

The Ellucian Foundation and the PATH scholarship were established in 2020. To date the foundation has provided over $1 million to 65 institutions and 1,100 grants to individual students.

The Ellucian company offers a variety of services to higher education institutions, including assessment, consulting and cloud transition, data analytics and management, and training.
