Some of the STG awards are created to honor a person or organization. Established and funded by individuals, companies, civic groups and foundations, these awards, like all STG awards, benefit Staples High School graduates with demonstrated financial need.

HONOR

By providing tuition assistance to Staples High School seniors and graduates with demonstrated financial need, these awards help students close the gap between what their family can afford and the expected cost of tuition at the student’s chosen college or vocational school.

RESPECT

Some of these STG Named Awards have been awarded annually for over 50 years. They are the foundation of the Staples Tuition Grants and have helped a remarkable group of young adults go on to become productive contributors to Wesport’s community and beyond. These ‘Named’ Awards recognize beloved members of the Town of Westport.
