This year we received about 200 applications, each one telling a different story of a UConn ECE Student's journey through their high school education. The high quality of the applications made it very difficult for the review committees to choose only six winners. Each applicant clearly demonstrated high academic achievement and a potential for future accomplishments in their chosen field, but there were six applications that stood out amongst the rest.
We are honored to have such amazing students in the program this year and are proud of their dedication to their future education. Award recipients received a certificate of accomplishment along with a $500 monetary award to use towards post-secondary education expenses. UConn Early College Experience (ECE) is pleased to announce the 2019 student scholarship winners to the UConn ECE community.
And the winners are ...

Hebatalla Mohamed, Rockville High School
