The Kenney Community Service Award

High School seniors who are residents of New Britain or Waterbury and are applying for a scholarship from the American Savings Foundation may be nominated for the Kenney Community Service Award.

Recipients are selected based on an exceptional record of community service which has made a significant impact in their communities.

The Kenney Community Service Award is for up to $5,000 for freshman year, depending on need. Like all our scholars, recipients will be eligible to apply for the Robert T. Kenney Scholarship for a total of 4 academic years.

The foundation's selection committee may consult with school officials and representatives from the nominating organizations. Finalists may be asked to interview with members of the selection committee.

If you DO NOT want to be nominated for the community service award, you can skip the nomination form and proceed directly to the full scholarship application.

If you DO want to be considered for this extra award, you must complete BOTH the full scholarship application AND submit a completed Nomination Form with an additional letter of recommendation.
