    To show their appreciation for everyday heroes in our community, the Connecticut Domestic Violence Information Center is proud to once again offer the Good Samaritan Scholarship for 2023. This $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to a student who exemplifies the characteristics that are embodied by a good samaritan. We are looking for a student who is helpful and giving towards others.
