Students, Donors Celebrate at Annual Scholarship Awards Ceremony

April 13, 2017

The Neag School of Education honored more than 100 of its students last night at its Annual Scholarship Awards Ceremony. Formerly known as the Honors Day Celebration, the event — held at the Jorgensen Center for Performing Arts on the UConn Storrs campus — brought together current students receiving Neag School-affiliated scholarships in the coming academic year; their guests; and the donors whose contributions to the Neag School make these sources of financial support possible.
