4-Year College Scholarships

The Hartford Foundation has a wide array of scholarships for 4-year college students. These scholarships are offered through three channels: the Scholarship America portal, the Hartford Foundation scholarship portal and our Community Scholarship listings. Each channel offers different scholarships, so we recommend browsing all three.
