There are several funds at the Valley Community Foundation that distribute scholarships throughout the year.
Scholarship seekers should contact the Guidance Counselors at their school for application information. Applications are not handled by VCF directly. Recommendations for awards are made externally by school committees, organizations and designated parties. Deadlines and eligibility criteria vary.
Scholarships are also available through our partner The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven.

- Academy of Our Lady of Mercy, Lauralton Hall
