Each year, the Gateway Community College Foundation awards scholarships to help students begin or continue their education and to recognize and reward outstanding academic performance. The recipients and the generous donors who support the scholarship program are celebrated at an annual luncheon.
The Gateway Community College Foundation scholarship program is made possible through the generosity and vision of individuals, corporations, and foundations throughout Greater New Haven and beyond.
Continuing academic scholarship opportunities include an array of disciplines, including business, early childhood education or special education, engineering technology, health care, human services, liberal arts, mathematics, media services, and science.
Scholarships also reflect donor-specified requirements, such as financial need, academic merit, community service, “lapsed” academic career, specific geographic residency, or status as an employee of—or the child or grandchild of an employee of—the donor company.
For many well-deserving recipients—especially those facing financial hardship or balancing challenging work and family commitments while pursuing their education—these scholarships often mean the difference between staying in college, or leaving with the dream of education unfulfilled.
"The scholarship program is made possible through the generosity and vision of individuals, corporations, and foundations throughout Greater New Haven and beyond. We greatly appreciate your commitment."
Paul McCraven, Vice-Chair, GCC Foundation
