Meet Past Scholars

Over the years, the Foundation has supported over 2,300 students achieve their dream of a college education. These students have attended more than 350 different colleges and universities all across the country to pursue degrees in every field you can think of. 

Do you have a story?

Our past scholars are now living and working all over the world - but many of them are living and working right here in Connecticut.

They are doctors, lawyers, nonprofit leaders, engineers, and community volunteers. Get to know some of these past scholars and where their careers have taken them.
