Community Scholarship Association of Granby (CSAG) offers annual scholarships to graduating Granby Memorial High School seniors. Applicants must be Granby residents who are soon-to-be high school graduates accepted at an institution of higher learning approved by the selection committee. The largest scholarship, the David A. Schupp, Jr. Memorial Scholarship, will be awarded to a student pursuing a STEM major. The primary basis for selection is scholarship, with consideration given to need, initiative, character and responsibility.
CSAG has been performing this service since the first graduating class of Granby Memorial High School. To date, CSAG manages contributions of all kinds, but particularly funds from a Holcomb family endowment and annual fundraising in conjunction with the Granby Road Race. CSAG has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars to nearly 400 students making a significant impact on their young lives.
With the always-rising costs of a college education, CSAG asks former scholarship recipients, as well as the community, to please consider making tax-deductible contributions to CSAG so that the organization can award more scholarships and provide more substantial awards. Contributions should be made out to CSAG and mailed to Steve Schock, Treasurer, 19 Moosehorn Road, West Granby, CT 06090.
Scholarship applications are available online through Naviance, at the College and Career Center or through your guidance counselor. Completed applications should be submitted to Mrs. Caruso in the GMHS counseling office on or before May 1.
