This year, the Greenwich Scholarship Association awarded more than $520,000 to 120 high school seniors. The sponsors of the awards included civic groups, local businesses, families with memorial awards and individuals providing scholarships to students from Greenwich schools for their first year in college.
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.
