We’ve helped hundreds of students, thousands of families and we remain small enough to help everyone, one goal at a time!

Together we can change lives

The CT State Colleges & Universities (CSCU) Foundation, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization providing students with financial support. We set strategic goals and pursue business outcomes in the best interest of The Foundation’s sustainability and the student’s educational and career journey.

We provide tools and resources based on each student’s unique journey. Through this lens, we will help them excel as tomorrow’s leaders in education and employment. If you want to partner with us or personalize your legacy by changing lives, growing a student’s career, and inspiring others, please get in touch with Helen G. Sneed, our Board President.

Change Lives, Grow Careers, and Inspire Others!

We assist students in obtaining enhanced access to quality education and training anchored on the 12 community college campuses, four state universities, and Charter Oak State College.

Scholarships Change Lives

Earning a scholarship is an honor. Being recognized for your accomplishments and your potential success in college helps create a greater sense of belonging and motivation. Our donors make life-changing scholarships a reality for many students all across the state of Connecticut.

We combine your dreams, potential, and donor-inspired legacy all in one place.

Working Together, Hand in Hand




Internships Grow Careers

Experience and career contacts are extremely useful tools for students, as they offer opportunities to build a professional network. Employers with intern programs create an ongoing pipeline of future full-time employees. Interns who become full-time employees are almost 30% more likely to stay with a company than other full-time hires.

Internships create, grow and enhance your circle of influence and improve your talent pipeline. We connect talented students with internship opportunities!
