At Ellucian, we wanted to do our part and in 2018 we created the Ellucian Pathways Scholarship. This scholarship is designed to contribute to the success of students and institutions who are making a difference with guided pathways. In our first year, we awarded $50,000 to twenty students from ten institutions. We congratulate all the winners and wish them the best in their future endeavors.
