The Curtis D. Robinson Appreciation Dinner was held on April 25, 2017. The dinner was organized and sponsored by the Ebenezer D. Bassett Memorial Committee and the Office of Institutional Advancement. Mr. Curtis and Sheila Robinson are major financial donors to the Ebenezer D. Bassett Scholarship. Through their generous contribution we are able to award two $500 dollar scholarships to two CCSU male students (i.e., undergraduate and (or) graduate students) that represent an underrepresented, non-traditional, underprivileged group, and/or who have demonstrated a financial need to meet educational expenses. The dinner was held in the Robinson's honor to show the university's appreciation for their investment in our students.
