Support the Aburdene Family Scholarship Fund in Memory of Olga and Felix Aburdene Today

Olga and Felix Aburdene Scholarship Fund A Project of Aburdene Family Scholarships

On March 29, 1956, Felix Aburdene immigrated to the United States from Bethlehem, Palestine with the ambition to build a new life for his family. Through hard work and determination, Felix and his wife, Olga, not only lived the American dream but saw this promise realized through the lives of their five children — all graduates of UConn.

Gifts to this fund support the University by providing scholarship support for undergraduate students enrolled at the Waterbury campus. Priority for scholarship is given to first generation students with a strong record of community service.
