Individual Scholarships

The Claire C. Bennitt Watershed Fund recognizes that young people will need the tools to protect our environment in the future.  The Fund offers scholarships to residents of the district served by the South Central Connecticut Regional Water Authority who are studying environmental science at an accredited college or university at the undergraduate level.  The scholarships are available to those returning to school as well as to recent high school graduates.  Recipients may apply for renewal of the scholarship. Selection of recipients is based on factors including demonstrated academic ability, demonstrated concern for school and community, life experience, teacher/advisor recommendation, financial need, and intent to pursue a course of study that meets the mission of The Claire C. Bennitt Watershed Fund.  The application form and grantmaking guidelines are available on The Claire C. Bennitt Watershed Fund website, www.thewatershedfund.org.

Population(s) Served

The Claire C. Bennitt Watershed Fund started with the belief that, through education, people can learn ways to protect and safeguard threatened watershed lands.  It makes grants to support programs that educate citizens as to how they can help preserve the environment and open space on watershed land.  Selection of programs for funding is based on several factors, including (1) program must complement the South Central Connecticut Regional Water Authority's environmental education program and be offered to citizens within the district served by the Authority, (2) program must provide an educational experience that enhances the Authority's source water protection program or creates opportunities to advance the mission of The Claire C. Bennitt Watershed Fund, and (3) application must include quantifiable benchmarks to measure achievement of a project's objectives.  Grants generally do not exceed $10,000. The application form and grantmaking guidelines are available on The Claire C. Bennitt Watershed Fund website, www.thewatershedfund.org.

Population(s) Served

The Claire C. Bennitt Watershed Fund recognizes that land use choices are important decisions confronting many municipalities across the region.  The Fund will partner with local land trusts, municipalities, state agencies and others to protect threatened watershed lands.  These collaborations will help ensure the future protection of our region's drinking water supplies.  The application form and grantmaking guidelines are available on The Claire C. Bennitt Watershed Fund website, www.thewatershedfund.org.
