Petit Foundation Grant to Recognize Young Women Scientists and Engineers

The Petit Family Foundation has selected the Connecticut Science Fair Association, Inc. to receive a $3000 grant in support of the 2018 Connecticut Science and Engineering Fair. This grant will be used to recognize the work of young women scientists and engineers in grades 7 to 12 with the Petit Family Foundation Women in Science and Engineering Awards.

The Petit Family Foundation honors the memories of Jennifer Hawke-Petit, Hayley Elizabeth Petit and Michaela Rose Petit by continuing the kindness, idealism and activism that defined their lives. The Foundation’s funds are given to foster the education of young people, especially women in the sciences; to improve the lives of those affected by chronic illnesses; and to support efforts to protect and help those affected by violence.
