Connor Group Kids and Community Scholarship Program

Organization & Scholarship Overview:
The Connor Group Kids & Community Partners is once again offering scholarships for high school and college-age students. Winners will be notified on or before April 1. It should take less than 20 minutes to thoughtfully complete (no long essays required!) We will award up to 6 scholarships of $2,500 or more. We were so impressed with one of our 2019 recipients from Vandalia Butler High School that we covered the full cost of tuition to attend The Ohio State University! Students can apply anytime but the deadline for 2020 scholarships is January 15th. More details provided by accessing the application link.
