Foundation Scholarships: New Gifts Create Award For Older Students (25 & up), Women in 2018-2019

Major gifts to the Capital Community College Foundation have established scholarships to benefit adult learners and women in the 2018-2019 year.

The Katz Family Scholarship  is one of the awards available through the College Foundation’s scholarship program for new and continuing students, full or part-time. It will provide scholarships to students who are 25 years or older, demonstrate academic progress in a degree program and have a financial need.  In addition, the Deborah F. Katz Memorial Scholarship will provide scholarships to women students who demonstrate academic achievement and have a financial need.  

Both scholarships will be renewable for a second year contingent on satisfactory academic progress. The new scholarships have been made possible through the generosity of  Elton and Rosalind Katz to the College Foundation.

The new scholarships for students 25 and older follows national recognition last fall when The Washington Monthly ranked Capital Community College as one of the 10 best two-year colleges for adult learners and the only community college in New England to gain top ranking in the annual survey.  Rankings are based on transfers, flexibility of programs, tuition, percentage of students over 25, mean earnings of adult students and loan repayment rates. The average age of Capital students is 29 and three-quarters attend on a part-time basis.

A new gift will also provide a full-time scholarship for two years ($5,000 per year) to a graduate of Hartford Public High School for the upcoming academic year.  The Mimi and Brendan Lynch Scholarship is for a Hartford resident graduating from Hartford Public High School who is involved in community service.

Criteria and an application for all CCC Foundation scholarships are available from the College’s Office of Financial Aid and the College’s Foundation office or at the following link Foundation Scholarship 2018
