Support the Aburdene Family Scholarships Today!

Established by Elias Aburdene '74 (CLAS) and his wife, Annette, the Aburdene Family Scholarships provide support to undergraduate students enrolled at UConn Waterbury.

The scholarships honor individuals that greatly inspired Elias throughout his life; his parents, Felix and Olga, who immigrated from Bethlehem, Palestine in 1956 and 1957, and his high school English teacher, Philip Benevento, who encouraged him and his siblings to pursue their college degrees.
