In the 2017-18 Academic Year

  • 46 undergraduate scholarship recipients
  • 3 graduate school scholarship recipients
  • over $200K awarded
  • awards ranging from $500 to $10,000

One of the most innovative aspects of the scholarship program is its relationship to what’s become a larger project, the overall educational model of the NHA. The model broadly includes four overlapping and related spheres:

  • Engagement—NHA free Learning Centers and early childhood programs promote education and provide support to younger children and families in line with Connecticut’s Two-Generational Model and Framework in Poverty Reduction. LEARN MORE BY CLICKING HERE
  • Encouragement—support and reinforcement towards regular school attendance, grade improvement, and higher education goals
  • Opportunity—the scholarship program provides funding for post-secondary education
  • Outreach—the NHA encourages scholarship recipients to visit the Learning Centers and to encourage and help up-and-coming students, acting as ambassadors, role models, and mentors for the community-at-large and younger students
