Camille B. Perugini Charitable Trust offering scholarships


The trustees of the Camille B. Perugini Charitable Trust are now accepting applications for its annual scholarships.

The scholarships are available to all high school seniors from Naugatuck, Prospect, Beacon Falls, Wolcott and Waterbury, who demonstrate scholastic achievement, community involvement and financial need.

Scholarships will range up to $3,000 and multiple students will be awarded scholarships.

An additional $1,500 scholarship will be offered this year in the memory of John A. Perugini to a student who is pursuing a career in the military or animal care. Students interested in this scholarship should specify that in the essay for the application.

Completed applications must be returned by April 30 to attorney Carla M. Perugini Erickson, P.O. Box 7299, Prospect, CT 06712.

Applications are available in most high school guidance offices or by contacting Erickson at (203) 527-9307 or via e-mail at
