The Ebell / Flint Scholarship

Scholarship Description

Awards of Ebell scholarships are based upon character, scholarship, and financial need. The Scholarship committee’s judgment as to the eligibility for a scholarship will be based not only upon school and college scholastic transcripts in the usual form, but also on an autobiographical essay, an interview, and written recommendations on behalf of the candidate from persons with whom he/she has been associated either before or during his/her attendance at college.All Ebell Scholars have excellent academic records and are in financial need. The commitment they have to their communities is the way they demonstrate to us their good character. The definition of community is different for each student. It may be their school community, it may be the city, or it could be their family, which may require extraordinary support of one kind or another from the student. Because we consider the scholarships our gift to the community, we choose scholarship recipients who share our feeling of responsibility for the communities in which we all live.The requirements for an applicant to be considered for an Ebell scholarship are:• United States citizenship, if naturalized citizen, please send proof• Resident of Los Angeles County for one year or more• Attendance at a accredited Los Angeles County educational institution• Expected sophomore status or higher in that educational institution at the beginning of next school year (only undergraduates qualify)• Achievement of at least a 3.25 cumulative GPA• Availability for an interview with Ebell Scholarship Committee• Demonstrated community commitmentIt is the responsibility of the student to complete and/or provide to The Ebell the following by the deadline:1) The Ebell of Los Angeles Application Form2) A one-page autobiographical essay3) Ebell Scholarship Applicant Financial Aid Profile4) Official Transcripts to date from the higher educational institutions the applicant has attended (If selected, an end-of-year transcript will be required.)5) Three letters of recommendation (faculty member, professional or work associate, personal reference, e.g. teacher, counselor, supervisor.)Scholarship recipients must continue to maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.25 and each year must successfully complete a minimum of 24 units (semester system) or 36 units (quarter system).
