Connecticut Community Foundation Scholarships

Connecticut Community Foundation Scholarships
Connecticut Community Foundation (CCF) Scholarships are awarded to students who reside in the state of Connecticut. Several different scholarships are offered for students pursuing careers in international business, visual arts, Polish studies, medicine, or ophthalmology. Students must plan to enroll in a two-year or four-year college or university.

Students must reside in any of 21 Connecticut towns in Greater Waterbury and the Litchfield Hills areas of Connecticut that are served by the Connecticut Community Foundation. Applications are available beginning in January. Most of the scholarships are for students attending college for the first time.

Scholarships available include the CCF Scholarship, the Special Funds Scholarship for students pursuing specific fields of study, and the Harold & Ruth Ann Leever Scholarship for students whose parents work for MacDermid worldwide. Each scholarship has its own criteria for applying.

The scholarships are funded by the Connecticut Community Foundation, a non-profit organization serving students as well as citizens of Connecticut since 1923. In addition to scholarships for students, the foundation gives grants and supports the efforts of non-profit organizations. Funding comes from private and corporate donors, foundations and other local funds.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in MARCH of each year, and the award amount is usually $500 - $4,000.
