Alumni Association Seeking Applicants for Scholarships
The Alumni Association is seeking applicants for its scholarships. The scholarships will be awarded to deserving:

  • Full-time undergraduate students at UConn for the academic year 2001.
  • UConn undergraduate seniors accepted for full-time first year graduate studies at UConn for the 2000-2001 academic year.
  • High school seniors who will be attending UConn for the 2000-2001 academic year as a freshman.

Applications will be evaluated on four criteria: academic performance, financial need, excellence in field of interest, and University or community-related extracurricular activities and/or employment. Recipients of an alumni scholarship will be notified in early spring. The monetary amount of the scholarship will be credited directly to the student's fee bill. If the student does not attend UConn for the academic year 2000-2001, the scholarship must be forfeited.

Applications must be received by 5 p.m., Friday, November 5. Faxed applications will not be accepted. Scholarship applications are available now through Friday, October 29, at the Alumni Office, Financial Aid Office, Deans' Offices, Dean of Students Offices at all Regional Campuses and via the Alumni Association website: For more information, contact Kristi Napolitano at (860) 486-1236 or by e-mail:
