Application deadlines are quickly approaching for more than $160,000 in scholarships available through funds managed by the Community Foundation of Greater New Britain (CFGNB).
Scholarships are available to 2014 high school senior class students in New Britain, Berlin, Plainville and Southington, with select scholarships available to students in Farmington, Newington and Wethersfield. Several scholarships are also available to local students already enrolled in the higher education program of their choice. Last year, the Community Foundation awarded 61 scholarships from 41 separate donor-established funds totaling more than $145,000.
Though deadlines for application vary by scholarship and town, the vast majority of deadlines arrive in late March. Accordingly, students and their parents are encouraged to act promptly.
Students enrolled in a public high school should speak immediately with their guidance counselors, who have detailed information on the available scholarships, deadlines and the application process.
Students enrolled in a private or parochial high school should visit the scholarship section of the Community Foundation’s website (www.cfgnb.org) for detailed scholarship application information.
