The Ebell/Flint Scholarship

Awards of Ebell scholarships are based upon scholarship, character, and financial need.  The Scholarship Committee's judgment as to the eligibilty for a scholarship will be based not only upon college scholastic transcripts in the usual form, but also on an autobiographical essay and written recommendations on behalf of the candidate from persons whom he/she has been associated either before or during his/her attendance at college and an interview.

All Ebell Scholars have excellent academic records and are in financial need.  The commitment they have to their communities is the way they demonstrate their good character.  The definition of community is different for each student.  It may be their school community, it may be their city, or it could be their family, which may require extraordinary support of one kind or another from the student.  Because they consider the scholarships their gift to the community, they choose scholarship recipients who share their feeling of responsibility for the communities in which we all live.

Annual Amount

Currently, the scholarship award for 2-year schools, such as community colleges, is $3,000 per year; the award for 4-year colleges and universities is $5,000 per year, each issued in two disbursements.
