Unleash Opportunities. Support Scholarships. Transform Lives.

When you make a scholarship gift, you put a UConn education within reach of a promising student and instill the confidence to succeed. You motivate an accomplished student to work even harder and explore new perspectives. You create an opportunity for a talented student to be the first in his or her family to attend college.

You make the difference.

UConn’s scholarship program is a vital tool for maintaining academic quality and socioeconomic and ethnic diversity. Without scholarships, many students would not be able to attend UConn or complete a degree.
In 2018–19, 48.9 percent of 11,743 undergraduate students in Storrs received support.
