Our Mission Statement: Through the granting of scholarships and awards, we inspire, encourage and support Stamford students in their pursuit of college, graduate and vocational education.

The Joseph W. Nunn Scholarship Foundation was formed in Stamford, Connecticut in 2005 by his parents, Joseph and Myrtle Nunn. The Nunn’s recognize the importance of education and wanted to let others know how they can join in and improve the lives of others in the Stamford community by providing financial support to families and individuals seeking educational and training opportunities. It has been proven that people with college degrees and vocational training are more likely to be gainfully employed and offered career opportunities than those with lesser education. You can help this foundation bridge the gap between family income and college costs.
