The Ellis Trust for Girls helps young women of limited financial means enhance their high school experience and prepare for post-secondary success. Each year, we award grants to eligible young women to support their education and life goals by providing funding for approved enrichment programming and extracurricular activities for students attending public high schools and charter high schools.
Before submitting an online application for the 2022/2023 academic year, please review the grant eligibility requirements by visiting www.ellistrust.org and see our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for more information.
To complete the application the student applicant must:
- Create an new account (providing a valid email address and password) or sign in to an existing account below to start the application.
- Submit a personal statement and upload the documents requested in the application including your most recent official report card and current household income documents (e.g. COMPASS statement, federal income tax for tax year 2021 (if filed), child support, and Social Security benefits).
- Ensure at least one uploaded document lists the student applicant as a current dependent of the custodial parent/guardian.
