Make a Lasting Impact -- Establish a College Scholarship through ULP

At the 2017 Empowerment Dinner, ULP was proud to award $100,000 to 52 students.

Education is the bedrock of economic and social success, and the one true road to empowerment. By offering scholarships to deserving high school seniors, the ULP fulfills the organization’s ultimate goal of creating self-sufficient members of the community.

Community scholars attend a wide variety of institutions, including Community College of Philadelphia, Temple  University,  The University of Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania State University and Kutztown University. We are proud of each and every one of them and appreciate the effort that many of them put into maintaining contact with us and with their scholarship donors.

Our scholarships are donated by our board members, our stakeholders, corporate partners, members of our affinity groups—people just like you.

Scholarships range from $1,000 to $5,000 per student. If you want to experience the warm glow of pride and satisfaction, call 215.985.3220, ext. 236 and learn how you can create a scholarship.
