About the Connor Endowed Scholarship Fund

Sandra and Robert Connor established the Connor Endowed Scholarship Fund at Pulaski Academy to provide financial to one middle school and one upper school student each year. The goal is to provide assistance to students who have shown academic promise, who model Pulaski Academy’s core values and who demonstrate financial need.

The Head of Enrollment Services and Financial Aid will identify students in each division that meet the priorities of the Endowment and will present them to Pulaski Academy’s Financial Aid Committee for confirmation. Upon confirmation the Head of Enrollment will recommend candidates for consideration by the Connor family. Each student selected may receive up to 50% of tuition and can continue to receive the scholarship until graduation as long as they meet the school’s academic and behavior requirements and continue to demonstrate financial need.
