Education paves the path to opportunity
We envision a vital and inclusive community where every individual has the opportunity to thrive. A proven way for someone to thrive is through education.
Yet few college-bound students have the financial resources to pay for their post-secondary education entirely out of pocket. Even students with substantial college savings often find they are left with sizable amounts of unmet need.
Scholarships can make the difference between dropping out and earning a degree. By reducing financial concerns, scholarships can also free more time for studying and learning — which can lead to better knowledge retention, grades and opportunities.
We steward more than 400 scholarship funds established by individuals, families and companies to benefit Fairfield County students.
