Each year, the Trico Foundation awards scholarships for state, community and vocational colleges to Trico Members and their families. Students interested in a scholarship for the 2018-19 academic year may begin applying online starting February 26, 2018.
In order to be eligible to receive a Trico Foundation Scholarship, applicants must:
- Be a Trico Member, spouse of a Member or dependent child who is claimed as a dependent on the federal tax return.
- Be a full-time undergraduate student or will be a full-time student in the fall. (Applicant must carry a minimum course load of 12 credit hours.)
- Have a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or greater.
Scholarships are for one year. Students can reapply the following year. Students who already have bachelor’s degrees are NOT eligible for the Trico Foundation scholarship.
The majority of the funding for the Trico Foundation comes from donated and unclaimed Capital Credit retirements. The money collected by the Foundation is then used to fund college scholarships to Trico Members and their dependents. In February, Senate Bill 1412 was introduced in order to allow State cooperatives to continue to keep Member’s capital credits in their community. Trico, and other State cooperatives, is asking you to support SB1412. This bill will allow Trico to continue to use unclaimed Capital Credit retirements to fund scholarships.

The Trico Foundation is a non-profit organization
that grants scholarships to Trico members.
The Trico Foundation Trust is funded by
Trico members’ and past members' unclaimed
or donated capital credit checks.
