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 tuition assistance for students attending independent high schools and parochial high schools.

Before submitting an online application for the 2021/2022 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 you, the student applicant, will need to submit a personal statement and upload documents including your most recent official report card and current household income documents (e.g. federal income tax for tax year 2020, child support, public assistance, food stamps and Social Security benefits). 

  • At least one document MUST list the student applicant as a current dependent of the custodial parent/guardian.  
  • 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.
