The Club awarded scholarships to eight students from Derby and Shelton High Schools at a meeting on January 4, 2007. Each of the students had already completed their first semester and were registered for their second. Each was presented with a check after informing club members about their schools and their majors. Many of the students were accompanied by their parents for the presentation.

Each school is awarded three scholarships annually while two other scholarships are awarded to a student from either school. The Edward Handi Scholarship was presented for the first time in 2005. Click on the links to learn more about each of the scholarships. The 2006 winners are:
