For 80 years the Newtown Scholarship Association has been steadfast in its mission: to put a college education within reach for every high-school graduate from Newtown.
The Newtown Scholarship Association, Inc. invites all Newtown residents graduating from high school to apply for awards under their administration whether they attend public, private or parochial schools.
Each year our awards committee interviews an outstanding group of high school seniors. There is a review of scholastic information as well as activities and work history. Scholarships are awarded to those on the basis of the family’s financial need. A Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) report guides us in this determination.
