UConn Creates a Scholarship in Honor of School-Shooting Victims

The scholarship fund will pay the college costs of students who attend the Connecticut elementary school where a gunman killed 20 students and six adults last week and who are accepted to attend the university in the future. The university will also offer the scholarship money to siblings of the students killed in the attack and children of the adults who died.

All of the monies received will be spent solely for the fund’s purpose. If any funds remain once the needs of the groups above have been met, they will be used to benefit any future student from Newtown who attends UConn.
