The William H. Chapman Foundation was chartered in 1951 for the purpose of providing financial assistance to scholars of New London County, CT for post secondary education in both academics and the trades. Initial funding was provided from the sale of the former William H. Chapman Technical High School, now Bennie Dover Middle School.
The Foundation presently provides awards ranging from $500 to $2500 to an average of 150 students per year. Recipients are chosen on the basis of application (including financial and academic forms), academic performance and financial need (income cut-off level last year was family income of $110,000), extracurricular activities and community involvement. Extenuating circumstances are considered. There are no age, sex, race, religious, college or field of study restrictions. Chapman Foundation also makes awards to students desiring to attend vocational and certificate programs.
In addition to the William H. Chapman Scholarship there is also the Chapman Tech Alumni Scholarship. This is available to a graduating high school senior who is a direct descendant of a Chapman Tech graduate (i.e. great grandparent). This is a one time award. The forms for this scholarship can also be found on this website's Form tab.
