Yes, it  is possible to scale or grow size EBS. You may refer following links:

You may use Amazon Web UI tool. And  Upgrade CLI for the same.

while doing this make sure you have a snapshot created for the EBS volume so that your data remains secure even if something goes wrong.

You can grow the storage or compress the storage, but it can't be done simply. You'll need to take a snapshot of the current block, add a new, larger block and re-attach your snapshot.

There's a simple walkthrough here based on using Amazon's EC2 command line tools
