Ellsworth Community Scholarship
For the past year a group of teachers and community members have been working to create a scholarship fund for the graduates of Ellsworth Community School. This fund is now fully operational, and we need your help in making its promise a reality.
Imagine … The Ellsworth Community Scholarship will assist all qualifying graduates with the cost of attending any accredited university, community college, or trade school. From the second grader who dreams of becoming a doctor to the tenth grade student planning to be an auto mechanic, we believe that a student’s dreams should not end with a high school diploma.
Invest … This fund represents a joint agreement between ECS and the Charlevoix County Community Foundation. All gifts go directly to funding scholarships for our graduates. Our eventual goal is to build an endowed fund of $2.5-million. This level of funding will provide average annual scholarships of $12,500 per qualifying graduate. If every living Ellsworth graduate pledged just $1 per day we would be able to reach our goal in less than six years.
Inspire … The scholarship is open to any graduate with a minimum GPA of 2.75 who has attended ECS for no less than two full academic years. Scholarship amounts are based on a formula that includes the student’s GPA, number of years attending ECS, evidence of ongoing service to the community, and an oral presentation of future plans.
