This year, the Greenwich Scholarship Association awarded more than a half-million dollars to 119 high school seniors. A total of $517,300 was distributed, which came from $352,300 donated by local sponsors and $165,000 from GSA endowments.
Founded in 1978, the Greenwich Scholarship Association provides need-based college scholarships for graduating seniors living in Greenwich, Connecticut or attending Greenwich public, private or parochial schools. The mission of the all-volunteer organization is to match students in need with companies offering scholarships in order to further the educational opportunities of Greenwich students.
