Alliss High School Program

of the High School Scholarship Program

The Charles & Ellora Alliss Educational Foundation provides scholarships to private
High schools according to the following terms/guidelines:

  • School must have a total number of at least 100 students in grades 9-12 in the current academic school year or an average of at least 100 students over the past three years.
  • School is currently accredited by an association recognized by the State of Minnesota. School MUST submit a copy(s) of their most recent verification of accreditation to the Foundation along with their application.
  • 90% or more students, on average, are accepted into and attending accredited, colleges/universities toward a four-year college degree during the three year period immediately preceding the current academic year.
  • Scholarships are need-based according to each grantee school's own financial aid formula.
  • It is expected that all of the grant monies will be distributed as scholarships for the academic year in which the grant is received. For example, the check received in June 2012 for scholarships in academic year 2012-2013 must be fully used in the 2012-2013 school year. Only extraordinary or unforeseen circumstances would justify retention of any portion of the grant for distribution in subsequent academic years. Each school is required to notify the Charles & Ellora Alliss Educational Foundation of any unused scholarship monies by October of the year the grant was received, and the reason for the balance.
  • Only Income accruing to the grantee institution before actual expenditure or application of the grant funds shall be used by the grantee in support of its general student aid program.
  • To participate, schools complete and submit an application with all required supporting documents by April 15th of each year.
  • The Charles & Ellora Alliss Educational Foundation requires an annual report from each grantee institution to be submitted as soon as practical but no later than October 15 of the year the grant is made. The annual report will be submitted on-line.
