The annual MATYCONN scholarship program recognizes individuals who are successful in mathematics and enrolled in degree programs at Connecticut Community Colleges.


A maximum of three scholarships may be awarded each year. Previous recipients are not eligible to apply.

To be considered for a MATYCONN scholarship, a student must

• Be enrolled either full-time or part time in a Connecticut Community College with at least 12 credits completed.

• Have a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.0 and have a grade-point average of at least 3.5 in his/her mathematics classes.

• Have successfully completed at least 3 mathematics courses, at least one of which is above the Intermediate Algebra level, in the Connecticut Community College System.


The Chair of MATYCONN Scholarship Committee contacts college representatives at the beginning of the spring semester. The college representatives are responsible for forwarding the scholarship information and applications to all full-time and parttime Mathematics faculty. The faculty members announce the scholarship and distribute application forms in their classes.

The application consists of three components:

• The completed application form with required essay

• The math faculty member’s letter of recommendation

• A student copy of his/her Connecticut Community College transcript.

Deadline for submitting the complete application is 1st April. Selection will be completed before the MATYCONN Spring meeting.

The Chair of MATYCONN Scholarship Committee announces the winners at the MATYCONN Spring meeting. The scholarship checks are to be mailed to recipients two weeks thereafter.

Non-Discrimination Statement:

The winner(s) of MATYCONN scholarships will be determined by a selection committee set up by MATYCONN. Said selection will in no way be influenced by gender, race, national origin, sexual preference or any criteria other than the meeting of the application requirements and our committee’s evaluation using the rubric attached to the application.
