Education assistance


The Charles Ellis Trust for Girls, established to improve the lives of young girls living in single-parent households, is accepting applications for its 2012-’13 tuition assistance program.

Grants to aid in tuition prices are available to females residing in Philly who plan to enroll in a parochial high school. Eligible students must be in grades nine through 12, pass all major subjects, live in a household where one or both parents are absent or disabled and meet reduced-price lunch requirements under the National School Lunch Program. The deadline is April 13.
