Class of 1979 Scholarship

For their 40th reunion in 2019, the Class of 1979 wanted to do something special to honor their deceased classmates, so they partnered with the NCHS Scholarship Foundation to estabish a named, endowed, on-going scholarship fund – The Class of 1979 Scholarship Fund. 

The NCHS Scholarship Foundation is a broad-based community effort to provide financial aid for New Canaan High School graduates pursuing higher education. 


Grant Criteria

Scholarships are 100% need-based. The grants are based on applications first placed through the federal student loan programs. All applicants and awards are kept confidential.


Your gift will make a difference for a New Canaan High School graduating student who needs financial assistance in continuing his/her education. And it’s a great way to honor our NCHS Class of 1979 friends who are no longer with us.  All donations are tax deductible.
