The First Congregational Church Scholarship Fund
of Matching Remaining
First Church is the oldest organization in Waterbury dating back to 1691. The Church building was, for many years, the "Meeting House" for the Mattatuck Settlement, (Waterbury's original name). It's connection to education dates back to it's origin, when the first school classes were held in it's building, and frequently led by it's pastor.
Each year First Church gives almost $50,000 in scholarships to area students. Each Scholarship is for $1,000 and renewable for up to four years. Most recipients have no connection with the church. They are just bright, well rounded youth with a financial need. Funds given through Give Local will be used exclusively for even more scholarships.
