Although the original mission of the scholarship was to help students through their first year, we recognized the need to support students on their journey to completion of their goal.  These awards should be considered individual, one year scholarships as we do not give multi-year awards. The amount is based on how much money is available and the number of applicants. You must apply each year for a new award. To be eligible for consideration, applicants must meet the following criteria:


1. Must have received a scholarship from the New Haven Scholarship Fund in your senior year of high school.
2. Will be attending college in the year the award will be granted.
3. Must demonstrate financial need.


Application Requirements:
Applicants must submit ALL of the following:

1. A cover sheet with the following information:
  Name, current address, phone number and e-mail address
  School attended this past year
  School you will be attending this coming year

    Student ID
  Year you will be entering (sophomore, junior, senior)

2. A copy of your transcript of grades from the Registrar’s Office (does not have to have a seal and can be student generated.) Do NOT send a list of semester grades; it must be a transcript. If you changed schools, please be sure to include a transcript from the previous school, as your current school will not include those grades.

3A copy of your family’s previous year’s IRS 1040 Tax Return (pp. 1 & 2 only).

    If your family does not file a 1040, submit a copy of your Student Aid Report (SAR) from     your FAFSA.  If you do not do the FAFSA, submit our Alternate Income Verification Form (go to How to Apply for link to the form). 

    · Include a copy of your financial package, if you have received one from the college for the

      coming year. 

    · Also, include an account of your efforts toward financial aid from college, government, or other funds.

      (What have you done to try and get financial aid for the coming year?)

4. An essay of one to two pages about your past year(s), your major and your plans.

    (We like to see you as a person so let that be reflected in how you write the essay.)


Education Majors: should also indicate the subject and the grade level they are preparing to teach and explain their choice of careers.
