About the Scholarship Search Process...

  • The scholarship search process is a student-driven one.  It is the responsibility of the student and parent to identify and apply for relevant scholarships.  To assist our families with this process, we have provided the links and websites listed below.
  • Don't forget to check the website of each individual college or university that you are considering for information about specific scholarships offered by that school.  You will find information about these school-specific scholarships on the Financial Aid page of the school's website.

Individual Scholarships

The purpose of the Connex Foundation Scholarship is to assist individuals who are exploring the study of skilled trades or multi-site facility management with the end goal of advancing their career in this field. The scholarship serves to promote the multi-site facilities industry by attracting high school, college-level, career transitioning, adult re-entry, and veteran students into the field of study and encouraging their pursuit with financial support.

A college education is already a major financial challenge for most American families, but it becomes infinitely more difficult for a student when a parent dies, leaving little or no life insurance.

Life insurance is an important financial safety net that parents can leave their families. Unfortunately, nearly 102 million Americans don’t have life insurance, and most with coverage have far less than recommended.

Recognizing the character and perseverance that so many young people show in the face of such adversity, Life Happens sponsors the annual Life Lessons Scholarship Program for college students and college-bound high school seniors. Qualified entrants who submit essays or videos about how the death of a parent impacted their lives are eligible for scholarship money. Over two and a half million dollars in college scholarships have been awarded over the years.

Jack Terry was born in Poland in 1930. As a young boy, he lost his entire family in the Holocaust and struggled to survive the horrors of three Nazi Concentration Camps. At the end of the war, an American Army officer found Jack alone in the camp and arranged for him to come to the United States.

Later in life, Jack devoted much of his time to sharing his story with students, spreading knowledge and hope.
