Physics Major Earns $5,000 NASA Scholarship

Justin Fagnoni, a junior majoring in Physics, has received a $5,000 scholarship from the NASA Connecticut Space Grant Consortium. Fagnoni received the NASGC Community College Transfer Scholarship which, as the name suggests, is awarded to a student transferring from a community college in Connecticut. Fagnoni came to CCSU from Manchester Community College. He lives in Glastonbury and is minoring in Mathematics and Astronomy.  NASA Connecticut Space Grant Consortium (CTSGC) is a federally mandated grant, internship, and scholarship program funded as a part of NASA Education.

NASA CTSGC was formed in 1991 by a consortia of post-secondary institutions in Connecticut to encourage broader participation in NASA research.
