Charleen Gaudet Knapp Endowed Scholarship

This scholarship was established in January 2019 with substantial donations from Charleen Knapp ’77, ‘85 G, and her son Robert. Mrs. Knapp was a nontraditional student who attended Eastern while raising four children with her late husband Charles, a professor of engineering at UConn. After earning her bachelor’s degree and teaching certification at Eastern, she entered the teaching profession. She retired to assist with a family matter, but returned to her profession in 2004 as Supervisor of Student Teachers at Eastern for 12 years before retiring permanently in 2016. The recipients will be Early Childhood Education majors with financial need. Elementary Education majors with need may be chosen in the alternative.

Students are encouraged to file the FAFSA by March 1
