RHCCUCC Scholarship Info and Application Form
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 Church Council. This recommendation is then subject to the final approval of the Council.
Graduating high school seniors and returning college undergraduates who are seeking a church scholarship for the 2020-21 academic year are invited to complete and return an application prior to April 15, 2020. 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.

FULLER SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
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.
Frank Roswell Fuller was born in Hartford in 1873 and attended local public schools. He later formed his own company at 40 Wall Street known as Fuller & Company, which operated from 1904 to 1920. When he retired he came to live in West Hartford. He died in 1957. His will established a substantial scholarship fund. Mr. Fuller was always interested in helping “needy, deserving” students obtain the education that he had not been able to enjoy himself. The deadline for submitting your application and other documents is May 15th.
Now is the time to begin working with the students and their families. There will be brochures in the church office if you wish a copy. The application and application information can also be found here: Fuller Scholarship Information and Fuller Scholarship Application Packet
