Scholarships

The Quell Foundation Scholarships are a one-time, merit, and need-based award. Awards will be made to those students who demonstrate a high level of scholarship and/or a history of employment and training that reflects a commitment to work. Students must be accepted and enrolled in an accredited college/university.

The scholarship application cycle opens on March 1, 2023.

The deadline for all applications is March 14, 2023.

Applicants can find the link to all scholarship applications on the Quell Foundation website under the scholarships tab.

Returning scholars can find information for renewal in the application. Most renewals require everything that a first-time application would ask for except for the references.

All applications and supporting documents must be submitted electronically. Scanned copies of the original transcript may be submitted as an attachment.

Fundraising Events

We ask that guests dress formal, black-tie is optional.

To honor our theme and mission to lift the mask, we strongly encourage all guests to arrive wearing masks which we will remove during the welcome remarks and Lift the Mask ceremony before dinner begins.

The Quell Foundation typically carries extra masks at registration on the night of the event, however, we do request that masks be secured on your own, in advance of the evening as we cannot guarantee enough masks for all attendees. Plus…it’s more fun to pick your own!

Each April, The Quell Foundation invites its friends, followers, and donors to apply for a Team Quell bib by submitting our runner questionnaire. Bibs are assigned on a first come, first serve basis with the expectation that the runner will raise a minimum of $750 to the organization.

The Quell Foundation reserves the right to charge the remaining balance of an unmet fundraising goal to the runner’s credit card.
