About the Scholarship

Promising Scholars provides scholarship support to African-American students who demonstrate high academic achievement, leadership, and community service. Students must be from Connecticut, and preference is given to students from the New Haven area. Awards are given annually for full-time study at an accredited two-year or four-year college or university of the student’s choice. Past recipients can reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. Awardees receive up to $6,000 per year and attend an awards ceremony with Beta Tau members and other Promising Scholar recipients.
