In honor of National Philanthropy Month, we want to show you the profound impact you have on students. You open the door to a college education. You ease the burden on their families. You even inspire them to carry on the tradition of giving. Thank you!
“As the first child of a first generation, immigrant family, I have decided to pay for college on my own. Attending UConn has been quite pricey for me, so I spend most of my free time working. I was so thrilled to have received this award because it has allowed me to continue to attend UConn, which I have really grown to love.”

This scholarship makes a huge difference for me. I am a single mother who has worked full time on top of attending school full time so I can support my family. My dream has always been to help children in need and I want to make a difference for every student I teach, helping them achieve their goals.

“Through a series of challenges, including overlapping unemployment for my parents and my father’s cancer diagnosis, it was necessary to supplement my family’s finances with various kinds of aid. This award will make a massive difference. Becoming a teacher means the world to me and your generosity is key to me achieving this goal.”

“I wanted to become involved in respiratory care drug development because my mother and sister suffer from asthma. I’d love to be on a team or the initial innovator in developing longer-lasting drugs. The scholarship you have awarded me encourages me to push through school so that I am able to make a difference in others’ lives.”
