Farmington Valley Chapter Scholastic Book Award presentation
4pm


This is a FVC sponsorship of monetary awards to students for the purchase of textbooks which can be quite expensive at the collegiate level. The Farmington Valley members of the Links, Inc. understand that a college education serves as the gateway to better options and more opportunity. As opposed to generations of the past, high school graduates today are unable to obtain the number of high-paying jobs that were once available. Additionally, the U.S. has been transformed from a manufacturing-based economy to an economy based on knowledge.

Mentorship is also an important part of the award in which members are paired up with scholarship awardees such to provide guidance to help students navigate successfully through their college experience. We have awarded over $200,000 to over 40 students to date. Services to Youth
