Trico Foundation scholarship is ‘life-altering’ for 82 students

Each year, the Trico Foundation awards scholarships to Trico Members and their families to attend a university, community or vocational college.

In late January 2020, Trico will be accepting applications for the 2020-21 academic year.  

In 2019, 82 local college students received a scholarship from the Trico Foundation totaling $412,000. 

Brenda Pollock, a grandmother and Air Force veteran, called the Trico Foundation scholarship “life-altering.” At 52, she’s earning an associate’s degree in business management at Cochise College while working full time.

“It would have taken me another one to two years to finish school,” she said. “Instead I’ll be able to graduate in December.”

Tyler Temple, who will be starting his freshman year at the UA in the fall, said it’s great that “companies such as Trico are supporting the next generation of leaders and innovators.”

“Thank you for selecting me for the scholarship and for Trico’s commitment to the youth of the world,” he said.

Since its inception in 1983, the Trico Foundation has awarded more than $2 million – benefiting over 600 students – in scholarships to Trico Members and their dependent children. 

A selection committee made up of area educators reviews all scholarship applications and determines which students receive a Trico Foundation scholarship. The committee is independent of the Trico Board.
