The James & Thelma Connors Foundation has established a scholarship program to assist children who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the James and Thelma Connors Scholarship must:
Children and grandchildren of current James & Thelma Connors Foundation Directors are ineligible to apply.
Applicants will be notified in May. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of the James & Thelma Connors Foundation. Payments are made in mid-August.
Financial need will be considered if financial information is provided. If you choose not to provide financial information, it will not count against you when being considered for an award.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of the James & Thelma Connors Foundation play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Also as part of your application, one online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf by 3:00 p.m. Central Time on May 5, 2020.
Your application is not complete unless all required documents are submitted electronically through the Scholarship America Student Hub.
