The Town and County Club is a private, member-owned club established in 1925. Founded by women who were civic, social and intellectual leaders of Hartford, the club continues to attract individuals of energy and achievement.

The Town and County Club Scholarship’s purpose is to provide financial assistance to adult female students who are in the process of completing their undergraduate degrees. The award will equal the cost of tuition, fees, and books for one or more courses up to a maximum of $4000, depending upon the institution attended. This scholarship is open to female students who will be matriculated in an undergraduate degree program in one of nine colleges in the Greater Hartford area, including the University of Hartford.
