Students & Scholarships
Honoring High School Students with a Commitment to Community Service
Applications are now being accepted for its 2024 JWV Community Service Scholarships. The scholarships are awarded to high school seniors who have made a significant contribution to the Stamford community and are given in honor of Stamford veterans who have selflessly served our country and community.
The JWV Community Service Scholarships were established in 2005 when Fred Robbins Post 142 expanded the Citizen of the Year (COTY) program – one of Stamford’s most coveted community service/volunteer recognition efforts – to include young adults.
“These scholarships go beyond academic performance, to acknowledge excellence and leadership in community service across Stamford’s broad and diverse needs. Like the Citizen of the Year, these students must demonstrate the high standards of responsibility in civic life, help in the promotion of projects for the public welfare and personally have worked with distinction to improve Stamford on a community-wide basis.” – Gary Stone, co-chair of the Stamford Citizen of the Year Committee and co-chair of the Scholarship Selection Committee
