Attention Students: Apply for 2019-2020 Scholarships!

Scholarship applications are now available for the 2019-2020 academic year. Scholarship guidelines, requirements and applications are available on the Community Foundation website. Graduating seniors and current college students can apply for scholarships through the Community Foundation Scholarship Application. Scholarship parameters are established by donors. Students may qualify for scholarships based on residency in a specific town, attendance at a specific high school, career focus, and/or many other parameters. Many—but not all—scholarships consider academic excellence and financial need.  

Scholarship applications for the 2019-2020 academic year must be submitted by April 1, 2019. 

Most scholarships are awarded to residents of the Foundation’s 20-town service area. The Foundation serves the towns of Barkhamsted, Bethlehem, Canaan/Falls Village, Colebrook, Cornwall, Goshen, Hartland, Harwinton, Kent, Litchfield, Morris, New Hartford, Norfolk, North Canaan, Salisbury, Sharon, Torrington, Warren, Washington and Winsted/Winchester.
