UCAC has awarded scholarships to children and stepchildren of UCAC members for many years. The members, board and staff of UCAC take great pride in the Scholarship Program and the support the organization provides to students just starting out.
In 2022, UCAC is offering two Scholarship Programs, our traditional College Scholarships for children and stepchildren of members and our new Scholarship Program for students of the Connecticut Technical Education and Career System (CTECS). UCAC is proud to be able to continue to provide support for our members’ children and to be contributing to workforce development in Connecticut as we partner with CTECS to award funds to students pursuing careers in the trades.
Questions about either program may be directed to Barb Dimauro, UCAC executive director, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 860.631.7473.
