NELI receives money from funders who support the work of organizations in the Philadelphia five-county area and in southern New Jersey.
Organizations are eligible if they are located and or serve clients in one of these areas. Scholarships are contributed by the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, as well as by individuals and other local foundations. A limited number of partial scholarships through NELI are reserved for Fellows with the greatest need.
The Scholarship application is included in the general application form. You will also need to attach a separate letter explaining why you and/or your organization are requesting scholarship support.
