our programs

the MVP scholarship program


Each year, a number of students are selected as CFM MVPs by the Board. They are chosen based on academic and extracurricular achievement and for demonstrating a strong commitment to community service, as well as acceptance into college. They also must reflect a high level of character and a strong determination to succeed. This scholarship is one of the hallmarks of the Foundation’s mission to increase opportunities for under-resourced students.

Awarded in the month of June, selected MVPs will receive a laptop computer, printer and software package to help prepare for college. 

Since 2003, The CFM Foundation has awarded these scholarships to over 220 selected MVPs from the Hartford+ community.
