College students and their families
are finding it harder than ever to pay for school as prices rise and the economy struggles.
Four Berlin students received some extra
assistance when they were awarded a Robert T. Kenney Scholarship from the
American Savings Foundation last week.
This year, the
American Savings Foundation announced a total of $725,000 in scholarships – the
most it has ever awarded – for 384 students from across central Connecticut.
The scholarships are based primarily on financial need, and most of the
students are the first in their families to go to college.
