- Ellucian has chosen the recipients of its Ellucian Pathways Scholarship

December 20, 2018 — RESTON, VA — Ellucian, the leading provider of software and services built to power higher education, today announced the recipients of the Ellucian Pathways Scholarship. The scholarship is designed to provide financial support to students at institutions with guided pathways programs who, due to financial constraints, may have difficulty continuing their education.
Student applications came from immigrants, first-generation college students, student athletes, single parents, and adult-learners who all have an extreme passion for education and the courage to continue growing and learning. They are overcoming obstacles and challenging themselves to achieve their dreams of going into nursing, education, social work, physics, and more—all with a clear vision of the impact they intend to have on the world.
“It is clear that guided pathways programs are helping students complete their degrees, but the sheer volume of submissions for this scholarship underscores the need that still exists for so many students,” said Jackie Yeaney, chief marketing officer at Ellucian. “We truly believe that education has the power to transform lives and are extremely proud to support the Pathways Scholarship recipients as they continue their education and achieve their goals.”
The scholarship awards a total of $50,000 dispersed to more than 20 students of institutions with guided pathways programs. The institutions are:
- Alamo Colleges District
- Community College of Baltimore County
- Central Piedmont Community College
- George Mason University
- Hillsborough Community College
- Odessa College
- Orange Coast College
- Pima Community College
- St. Clair County Community College
- University of California, Riverside
One student recipient’s response summarizes the impact of this scholarship, saying: “I’m so excited to have received the Ellucian Pathways scholarship, as it is a true investment in my academic and professional development. I am grateful that you believe in me and my success, and I look forward to using it to offset my college expenses and, of course, serve others.”
Each institution will provide scholarship funds to two students who submitted a video sharing their story, education goals, and the impact higher education has on their life. Remaining funds will be used at the institution’s discretion to help additional students in need continue their course of study.
