Awesome Scholarships for Students in Connecticut for 2019 – 2020

College is expensive! Luckily, scholarships can help you pay for some of that education– and many small, local scholarships go unclaimed each year. That’s free money that nobody picked up! When we find state-specific financial aid, such as these scholarships in Connecticut, we want to share it with students like you.

We make it easy to find local and statewide scholarships with our scholarship search tool. You can even apply for scholarships right on our website.

Here is a list of some scholarships, specifically for Connecticut residents.
