I want to support the Sandy Hook School Memorial Scholarship Fund (#22964) 
at the UConn Foundation.

The events of December 14, 2012 have shocked our state and nation. To support the students and families in Newtown directly affected by the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School, The University of Connecticut Foundation, Inc. has established the Sandy Hook School Memorial Scholarship Fund (More information), through a lead gift of $80,000 from UConn Women's Basketball Coach Geno Auriemma. Thank you for your generosity in providing a university education to those affected by this senseless tragedy.

Sandy Hook School Memorial Scholarship Fund
Warning

The Sandy Hook School Memorial Scholarship Fund at the University of Connecticut will help support the college costs for any siblings of those killed in the assault, the dependents of the adults who also lost their lives, as well as students currently enrolled at the elementary school, who are accepted to attend the University. Available funds that have been collected by that time will be awarded to eligible recipients on the basis of financial need. If any funds remain once the needs of the groups above have been met, they will be used to benefit future students from Newtown who attend UConn. Applicants for the scholarship will be required to complete the FAFSA to qualify for need-based financial aid.
