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, residing in Philadelphia, to support their education and life goals by providing tuition assistance for students attending independent high schools and parochial high schools.  

Before submitting an online application, please review the grant eligibility requirements by clicking HERE , or visit www.ellistrust.org.

To complete the application you, the student applicant, will need to submit a personal statement and upload documents including your current report card, a signature page, and current household income documents (e.g. federal tax, child support, public assistance and Social Security benefits). If any documents include a Social Security Number (SSN) please cross out/remove/redact the SSN, as the Ellis Trust does not use this information.  As you work on your online grant application, the auto-save feature will save your application in draft form so that you can return to it after you have gathered the required documents for uploading. The application deadline is March 15, 2019.

NEED HELP? If you need help filling out your application, you can talk to the admissions or financial aid office at your school. If you have questions about the application process please call The Ellis Trust at (215) 790-1666 ext. 427 or ext. 442, or email us at ellistrust@philadelphiafutures.org. If you have any technical questions or need technical assistance in completing your online submission please reach out to support@submittable.com.

NOTE: The student email you use to register your Ellis Trust Submittable account is the email address we will use to communicate with you about your grant application.  Therefore student applicants, please double check spelling to ensure you receive all Ellis Trust correspondence.
