Overcoming Obstacles

Support CCSU students who have experienced the incarceration of a loved one

Children with Incarcerated Parents Scholarship A Project of General Scholarships

The Connecticut Children with Incarcerated Parents (CIP) Initiative offers scholarships for CCSU students that have, or have had, a close family member incarcerated. Eligible students may receive up to $1,500 per academic semester.

Your donation will help us support CCSU students who have experienced familial incarceration. There have been 10 scholarship recipients since the inception of the CIP Scholarship in 2015. With your help we can ease the burden of college tuition costs for even more students.

If we raise $1500, we will be able to provide an additional CIP scholarship for one semester. Raising $3000 would provide an additional CIP scholarship for one academic year
