AARP Connecticut Supporting Age 50+ Manufacturing Students

Scholarship Application on a table and dollars.

The manufacturing industry in Connecticut is booming and opening doors to opportunities. AARP Connecticut, as part of a multifaceted intergenerational approach to support the age 50 and older with an interest in continuing their education, has made a donation to The American Manufacturing Hall of Fame for older students enrolled in a Connecticut Community College manufacturing program.

Scholarships for up to $1,250 per student will be awarded through the Connecticut College of Technology, while funds last. Eligibility for the scholarship is as followed:

  • The age 50+ student is enrolled, or is enrolling, in any Connecticut Community College system manufacturing program.
  • The student is willing to share their story and demographic information with AARP for potential publication across AARP communication channels, as well as be willing to sign related releases.

To apply or ask questions about the scholarship, contact College of Technology & National Center for Next Generation Manufacturing Project Manager Wendy Robicheau by email (preferred) at or phone at 860-732-0075.

Whether it is reinventing a career, continuing an education, learning new skills or being part of a resurgent manufacturing industry, AARP Connecticut has opportunities to save money including on enrollment of select programs and classes at Albertus Magnus College and Goodwin University.
