Graduate Scholarships

A small number of graduate school scholarships are awarded only to past Robert T. Kenney Scholars. Priority is given to students pursuing a master's degree in education or social service, and who are attending graduate school within the state of Connecticut. Most graduate school scholarships are awarded for one year only.

Graduate school applicants must use the renewal application to apply.
