Our mission is helping Greater Cincinnati English learners to become successful in their academic lives while fostering their cultural identity.

The ELL Foundation offers emergency grants for local EL college students who are experiencing temporary financial emergencies, focusing on hunger, housing, and transportation. The College Emergency Grant Program application is available online. Emergency grant applications are accepted at any time, but applications are reviewed on a quarterly basis.
