The Award

Scholarships from the Phillips Fund are awarded every year to over 150 new applicants and over 300 returning scholars, to achieve our mission of making college more accessible by removing financial barriers.  

Awards from the Phillips Scholarship range from $2,000 to as high as $17,000 in a few cases. Individual award amounts are based on each applicant’s unmet need. The average award each year is in the $6,000 to $10,000 range. 

The award is renewable for up to four undergraduate years provided a GPA of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale is maintained during college and financial need does not change substantially. 

Award amounts may change from year to year as recipients’ financial situations change. If a recipient transfers to a different college or experiences any significant financial shift that reduces their need, their eligibility will be reconsidered and the award may be recalculated.
