In response to immense student need in the wake of COVID-19, Ellucian and its partners have created PATH, a global awareness campaign and scholarship fund.
Even before COVID-19 disrupted the world, millions of students around the globe were at risk of dropping out of school. And the pandemic has only made things worse.
Countless students are barely sustaining themselves as they become increasingly concerned about the affordability of higher education. Those most at risk are primarily from underserved communities, including many with parents who have lost their jobs or seen significant reduction in their income.
The PATH scholarship will help support the educational goals of these at-risk students so they can continue their studies.
Our goal is to raise $10 million by April 2021. Ellucian and its executives are proud to have pledged $1 million to kick off this campaign.
We are also thankful for the support of The Business-Higher Education Forum as our first partner in PATH.
