The Dylan Konakowitz Memorial Foundation (DKMF) is a local non-profit organization. Because of our generous sponsors and the overwhelming support of the community, we not only awarded five (5) $2,500 scholarships, but we were also able to award two (2) additional $1,000 scholarships for graduating high school seniors for the 2018-2019 academic year. 

Scholarships were awarded at our 1st Annual Awards and Thank You to Our Sponsors Dinner held on July 12, 2018 at Filomena’s Restaurant in Waterford. To view photos from that event click here.

The 2019-2020 DKMF Scholarship(s) will be awarded to students who meet the following criteria:

  • Student Athlete

  • Will be attending a local Community College (within 50 miles of New London, CT)
