Since 2003, the Urban League of Philadelphia has provided over 400 Philadelphia-area high school seniors with scholarships. Through the generosity of our donors, ULP has awarded over $700,000 in scholarship dollars, helping students fund their first year of college.

At the 2018 Empowerment Dinner, ULP was proud to award over $87,000 to 53 college bound students.

Our program has expanded, and we offer a limited number of four-year scholarships and other scholarships for upper classmen to help them complete their education.

Recipients of our scholarship not only receive an invite to our annual Empowerment Dinner, but also financial literacy coaching and the chance to receive mentoring from some of our donors.

The 2019 cycle opens on Monday, November 5, 2018. To apply, visit: (note: lowercase ‘l’ after P)
