The Hartford Golf Club Scholarship Foundation awards scholarships annually and is funded primarily by donations from members and former members of the Hartford Golf Club. Applicants must be employees or immediate family members of employees who have worked for the Club for at least one full year and are evaluated based on financial need, academic performance, character recommendations, and other criteria.

  • Jeranny Nuñez, a resident of New Britain and student at Goodwin College
  • Erin Szymanski, a resident of Harwinton and a grad student at Southern Connecticut State University

In addition, the Foundation presented three special named awards.
