At Ellsworth, we don't want tuition costs to keep you from getting a quality education. We work hard to keep tuition affordable, and we offer close to a million dollars in grants and scholarships to our students each year. (This is financial aid that doesn't need to be paid back.) If you focus on your academic success, we'll work with you to make it affordable.

You can apply for any Ellsworth scholarship by submitting the Scholarship Application Form. Many of our scholarships also require one or more references or recommendations. You can ask your reference(s) to submit our Scholarship Recommendation Form if needed!

Sophomores - We have specific scholarships for returning students! You can apply for a Sophomore scholarship by submitting the Sophomore Scholarship Application Form. Also, you can ask your reference(s) to submit a Sophomore Scholarship Recommendation Form as well!
