Hartford Public Schools Foundation for Quality Education

       ​Visit our

Scholarships awarded annually to the graduating class each year are perhaps the most visible example of how the Foundation reinvests the funds it earns by honoring our students for their high school accomplishments with financial aid as they head of to college.

Foundation scholarships are supported by events like the Annual Auction, Holiday Bazaar, Brick Sales and other projects throughout the year.

As the Foundation increased it assets over time, the dollar amount of scholarships and number of awards increased substantially.

Make a one time donation or a monthly commitment to the Scholarship Fund via the "Donate" button on the upper right of this screen.
