U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman, serving 1989-2013, has established the Joe Lieberman Connecticut Scholarship Fund to assist outstanding high school seniors from Connecticut who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs. Generous donations to the fund support the renewable scholarships which are awarded for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.
The 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, age, gender, disability or national origin.
The first 500 applicants will be notified in June whether or not they are recipients.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of the Joe Lieberman Connecticut Scholarship Fund. Payment is made in one installment in mid-August.
Financial need is not considered. Preference will be given to applicants who demonstrate outstanding leadership potential and record of community service.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does Joe Lieberman or any other party play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the award decisions as final. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
Also as part of your application, one online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf by 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time on April 6, 2020.
Your application is not complete unless all required documents are submitted electronically through the Scholarship America Student Hub.
