Henry Barnard Distinguised Student Award

Recognizing Academic Achievement & Community Service

12 outstanding college seniors who attend Central, Eastern, Southern and Western Connecticut State Universities are honored each academic year by the CSUS Foundation during the annual Henry Barnard Distinguished Student Awards Banquet, which has been held in the spring for 30 years.

The award is named for Henry Barnard, the first U.S. commissioner of education and a distinguished Connecticut educator, who was the state’s first superintendent of schools and principal of what later became Central Connecticut State University.
