Scholarships


Please Note:


  1. Scholarships are given as tuition refunds. As such, refunds are made with the same method used to pay tuition such as check or card, and funds are returned to the individual who paid the tuition such as a sponsor, parents, or the student.
  2. Scholarships are only available to currently enrolled students after successful completion of at least one semester at the ELC. Students may apply multiple semesters and may simultaneously apply for each scholarship for which they qualify. However, students can only receive one award per semester.
