External Funding Opportunities

We at Pre-College Summer strive to make our program as financially accessible as possible. In doing so, we offer numerous discounts (early bird and multiple session discounts) for students and their families to help save money on their summer endeavors.

Students interested in joining us for our Program have in the past applied for funding through Wishbone. Wishbone is a non-profit organization helping low-income high school students access and afford high quality summer programs, including UConn Pre-College Summer. For the 2019-2020 academic year and summer, Wishbone is not accepting student applications. 

In an effort to provide alternate sources of funding, we have provided links to a few known external scholarship sites and other funding ideas. Please note that the University of Connecticut and the Pre-College Summer Program in no way encourages these organizations or ideas. Questions regarding external funding sources should be directed towards the organization. 

  • FastWeb
  • Scholarships.com
  • Scholarship Monkey
  • College Board
  • Online Fundraising Websites (i.e. GoFundMe)
  • Student's school counselor and community for academic scholarship and fundraising opportunities
  • 529 Plan funds
    • Students and their families planing to use 529 funds should make our office aware. Checks may be made out to 'University of Connecticut' and mailed to the address below. The check memo should include the student's full name.
