The Don Albert 

  Memorial Scholarships


Janet Bessette has funded several scholarships in honor of her late husband, Don Albert.  Don Albert worked for UConn's College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources for many years.  Janet would like the series of scholarships she funds to go to students who have shown good academic potential, have performed community service, and have work experience. She feels that all of these experiences provide a good foundation for college. Scholarships range from 1 time awards to 4 year renewable scholarships. Janet would like the scholarships to go to students planning on pursuing the fields of Agriculture, Natural Resources, Veterinary Medicine, Marine or Wildlife Management, Education, Sports Studies, or Criminal Justice.
