The New Haven Woman’s Club, active in the city of New Haven, CT for more than a century until the spring of 2014, has established an endowed fund of $100,000 at Albertus Magnus College to provide scholarships for New Haven students. The scholarship will be awarded each fall to an incoming freshman from a New Haven high school with a G.P.A. of 3.0 or higher, based on need.

The generosity of the New Haven Woman’s Club, which began life as the New Haven Mother’s Club in 1900, provides a lasting legacy for New Haven students who pursue an education at Albertus Magnus College. “This is a magnificent gift to Albertus, a gift that will make it possible for generations of local students to carry on the spirit of service that motivated the members of the New Haven Woman’s Club for more than a century,” said Carolyn Behan Kraus, vice president for development and alumni relations at the College. “We are deeply grateful to the former members of the New Haven Woman’s Club who volunteered their time and energy so generously to the New Haven community.”

According to Janet Burblis, a longtime Woman’s Club member and past treasurer, “The New Haven Woman’s Club at one time was among the city’s largest women’s charitable organizations. In 2014, with declining membership, our group made the decision to dissolve. This scholarship will carry on our century of good works.” Albertus Magnus College in 2015 celebrated the 90th anniversary of its founding. The College has an enrollment of 1500 women and men in undergraduate and graduate programs, and is dedicated to a mission of service that empowers students as they prepare for meaningful careers and productive lives.
