Connecticut high school freshmen and seniors are being encouraged to apply for the CHET Advance Scholarship. The Connecticut Higher Education Trust will provide $2,500 to 200 high school students. 100 seniors and 100 freshmen will be selected.
No state funds are used for the scholarship awards. Winners will be selected through a random drawing from all eligible applications received. The program is open to Connecticut students who attend public, private, and parochial schools and who are home schooled.
The program launched in 2013. Since then, 1,000 Connecticut high school students have been awarded $2.5 million in CHET Advance Scholarships.
