William Pitt Foundation grant to support Fairfield University Community Scholars Program


For the second year in a row, The William Pitt Foundation has awarded a grant to Fairfield University's Community Scholars program. The $45,000 gift will be used to support the education of the same four Bridgeport students who began their education under the grant last year.

The Community Partnership Scholars program was created to help reduce, and where possible, eliminate financial barriers confronting low-income students in select high schools who are academically prepared to attend college. The participating high schools include Bassick, Central, Harding and Kolbe-Cathedral in Bridgeport, and Mother Cabrini and Rice in New York.
