To achieve our mission of making college more accessible by removing financial barriers, we partner with over 70 organizations who work with under-represented student populations as they work toward college graduation. These organizations support youth in a variety of New England communities, from urban to very rural areas. They give personalized guidance to low-income and/or first-generation-to-college students as they prepare for their higher education, helping them make informed college decisions.

Partner Organization Actions
Prior to the deadlines each year, partner organizations:
- Identify prospective Phillips Scholarship applicants and help them complete and submit the Phillips application.
- Complete a recommendation form for each of their applicants. Applicants must add the name and email of a staff member from the partner organization who knows them in the Recommendation section of the application so that the recommender can receive an email with a link to the applicant’s personalized recommendation form.
- Complete the Applicant List Form prior to the April and May application deadlines.
- Aid in the application process by acting as a liaison with the student should we have questions or concerns beyond the application.
- If their applicant is awarded a Phillips Scholarship, it would be helpful if they stay in contact with the Phillips Scholar throughout college and assist with future renewal applications, financial forms, and issues that could impact their Phillips Scholarship.
