Carol Feinberg ’49
Scholarship support for Posse Students
Carol Feinberg ’49 marked the 65th anniversary of her Connecticut College graduation by attending the Inauguration of President Katherine Bergeron in April 2014, and met Posse Scholars Amanda Crawford ’14 and Jocelyn Reaves ’15.
Carol was impressed. The visit underscored for her the importance of supporting the College’s Posse Scholars program.
Two months later, she gave the College $1 million gift to support financial aid to future Posse Scholars through the Carol Jaffa Feinberg ’49 Posse Scholarship. Her commitment also includes Annual Fund gifts that will provide immediate support to Posse Scholars while the scholarship endowment grows.
More about the Posse Program
“We are deeply grateful for Carol’s enthusiastic and enduring commitment to the College and to our Posse Scholars,” said President Katherine Bergeron. “This generous gift ensures that we will enjoy the presence of the Posse program — and the dynamic student leaders it brings to our campus — for many years to come.”
An avid art collector, Carol Feinberg is the wife of the late Maurice Feinberg, former president of Monsieur Henri Wines.
“In the years since Connecticut College, I’ve realized what a rich education I had there. My children and I are thrilled and supportive of this gift to enhance the Posse Scholars program,” she said.
Her comments were echoed by her son, David Feinberg. “We look forward to a long-lasting relationship with Connecticut College and the students who will receive this scholarship,” he said.
