About ECSA

Supporting students in their pursuit of higher education is one of the most important legacies we can leave for our children and our communities. 

Founded in 1959 by a group of Ellington residents, ECSA is deeply committed to raising, investing and distributing scholarship funds for students residing in Ellington and graduating from publicly funded secondary schools. The association annually awards thousands of dollars of scholarship money to graduating seniors. Donations to the association’s general fund and to specific endowments provide the money for these awards.

Over the years, ECSA has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars to Ellington students going on to college or technical and trade schools. Since 1990 alone, ECSA has awarded more than $1,000,000 to Ellington students pursuing a post-secondary education. ECSA is a nonprofit organization with exemption status granted pursuant to section 501(c) (3) of the Federal Internal Revenue Code.
