Our College Scholarships

Over the years, our big-hearted donors have recognized the importance of a college education in helping residents of our region succeed in life. More than 130 donors have created funds that make it possible each year for Connecticut Community Foundation to award college scholarships to hundreds of students.

Below are the five categories of college scholarships awarded by the Foundation. To apply, visit our scholarship application page.
