Gilbert Trust Scholarships


The W.L. Gilbert Trust Scholarships are administered by The Gilbert School and chaired by Principal Sue Sojka. All Gilbert graduating seniors and alumni are eligible to apply. Interested individuals may request an application from the school (860) 379-8521 or download the application (PDF).

In 2017, the Trust distributed more than $130,000 in scholarships to students planning to pursue post-secondary education. These scholarships, many in place since the early 1900s, are made possible by the generosity of The Gilbert School alumni and friends. We are grateful for their support and commitment to the continued education of our students!

THE DEADLINE for submission of applications is April 13, 2018.

Please mail the completed application and any required documentation to:

The Gilbert School Scholarship Committee

Attn: Ms. Sandra O'Connor

200 Williams Avenue

Winsted, CT 06098

or fax to (860) 379-6163
