The mission of The ELC’s Scholarship Program is to build a pipeline of Black corporate talent by supporting the academic achievement and development of Black undergraduate students.

The ELC offers fourteen undergraduate scholarships under its program which are open to high-achieving Black undergraduate students attending a four-year college or university. Scholarships are awarded to students who demonstrate academic excellence, leadership skills, and a commitment to community service. In addition to receiving a scholarship award, selected recipients are invited to participate in The ELC’s Honors Symposium, a multi-day professional development experience offering exclusive career development and networking opportunities.

Each scholarship program has unique eligibility requirements that candidates must meet for consideration.

  • Scholarship eligibility requirements vary.
  • Some scholarships are open to high-achieving Black undergraduate students attending a Historically Black College or University (HBCU).
  • Other scholarships are open to high-achieving Black undergraduate students attending any accredited four-year college or university.
  • Students who are currently enrolled in a community college or junior college and have been accepted to a four-year college or university (majority institution or HBCU) are eligible to apply.

The application window for the The 2021 ELC Scholarship Program is now closed.
