United Bank Foundation Dedicates $2,500 to Support Watkinson School’s City Scholar Program

(Hartford, Conn., May 16, 2019) The United Bank Foundation Connecticut today announced that they have dedicated $2,500 to the City Scholar Program at Watkinson School, Hartford’s oldest independent school.

Watkinson’s City Scholar Program provides scholarship funding for Hartford students who are college bound but not yet college ready to attend The Academy. An extension of Watkinson’s unique approach to education, The Academy is a pre-college year that combines honing skills through classes at Watkinson, acquiring confidence through earning college credits at the University of Hartford, and developing maturity through engagement with other areas of personal interest. Academy students collaboratively design their own program of targeted academic study, learning about themselves and the world around them, resulting in an enhanced ability to thrive independently in college and beyond.
