Each year, our church awards college scholarships which are funded by investment returns from the Scholarship Endowment Funds. Applicants should be members of Rocky Hill Congregational Church, active members of one of its youth organizations, or active participants in the life of the church. Awards are based upon church and community involvement, demonstrated scholastic achievement, financial need, and the completion and submission of a scholarship application form. Scholarships may be awarded for up to four years of undergraduate studies. Recommendations on scholarship recipients are made by the Scholarship Committee, whose members are appointed by the Board of Trustees. This recommendation is then subject to the final approval of the Trustees.
Graduating high school seniors and returning college undergraduates who are seeking a church scholarship for the 2018-19 academic year are invited to complete and return an application prior to April 15, 2018. Scholarship awards will be announced in June. Scholarships to graduating seniors will be presented in the applicant's school awards assembly program. Otherwise, recipients will be notified by letter. Scholarship checks will be paid to the awardee and notification of change of plans or non-attendance should be made to the committee prior to issuance of checks in mid-July and mid-December.
The application form may be downloaded here in the form of a Word document template file, filled out electronically and e-mailed to email@example.com, or printed out and mailed, or hand delivered to the Church office..

Please note the following additional information:
The Fuller Scholarship Program is administered through Trinity College for the benefit of high school seniors who are members of the UCC Congregational Church in the Hartford County area. This is a need-based scholarship program for students planning to attend a fully accredited college. Preference will be given to candidates planning to pursue a full-time program leading to a baccalaureate degree. It is renewable for succeeding years, if the student continues to meet the criteria.
Now is the time to begin working with the students and their families. The application process has been simplified. The March 1 deadline will be strictly observed. There will be brochures in the church office if you wish a copy.
