Over $200,000 in 2019 Scholarships Available At Community Foundation of Greater New Britain

New Britain, Conn., March 1, 2019 – Application deadlines are quickly approaching for over $200,000 in scholarship dollars available through funds managed by the Community Foundation of Greater New Britain (CFGNB).

Scholarships are available to high school senior class students in New Britain, Berlin, Plainville, and Southington, with select scholarships available to students in Farmington, Newington and Wethersfield. Multiple scholarships are also available to local students already enrolled in their continuing education.

Last year, the Community Foundation awarded 74 scholarships from over 40 separate donor-established funds totaling approximately $224,000. “In 2018 we awarded the largest amount of scholarship dollars in our history,” said Foundation President, David Obedzinski, “and we are on track to break that record in 2019 due to great applicants and generous donors who have established scholarships with us.”

The majority of deadline applications are due by March 31, and students and their parents are encouraged to act promptly.
