Apply for College Scholarships

We are one of the largest college scholarship providers in the Greater Waterbury and Litchfield Hills region and we invite you to apply.

To be eligible for most of our scholarships, students must reside in our 21-town area, possess a B- or better cumulative academic average and plan to attend an accredited college. However, some of our scholarships have unique criteria, so review the scholarship list page to determine your eligibility for each.

Many of our scholarships can be renewed for up to four years. If you are applying to renew your scholarship, please first consult your award letter from the previous year to determine which scholarship(s) you received in the past. If you still do not have your award letter, please request it via scholarships@conncf.org.

Application Deadlines

February 15 (11:59 p.m.) for students wishing to renew their scholarships for another year (except for Leever Scholarship). Scholarship applications are accepted beginning January 1.

March 15 (11:59 p.m.) for first-time scholarship applicants and Leever scholarship re-applicants. Scholarship applications are accepted beginning January 1.

For Naugatuck Valley Community College Students

To better meet your needs and timeframes, the Foundation provides scholarship funds directly to Naugatuck Valley Community College (NVCC), which the school then distributes. If you are planning to attend the community college this year, please apply directly to them for a scholarship using the NVCC Scholarship Application rather than the general scholarship application above.

This application is due September 1, 2017.
