WHO CAN APPLY

Be a Trico Member, spouse of a Member or dependent child who is claimed as a dependent on the Member's federal tax return.
Be a full-time undergraduate student at an accredited college, university, vocational school or other post high school educational institution, or will be a full-time student in the fall.

APPLY FOR A SCHOLARSHIP
Trico is now accepting applications for the 2021-22 academic year. Some things to keep in mind before applying:
The name on the application must be the name of the student applying.
Please use an email that you check regularly as email is the easiest way for us to contact students.
There are TWO parts to the application. Once you complete the General Information portion of the application, you must click "Submit Application." You will have to go to your Dashboard to complete "follow-ups" for the scholarship you qualify for. If you don't see any scholarships, it means you didn't meet the requirements of the scholarship.
Students must submit their official transcripts and a letter of reference. Please allow plenty of time to complete this follow-up work.
The deadline to apply is March 1, 2021.
Students who already have bachelor’s degrees are NOT eligible for the Trico Foundation scholarship.
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 of Directors.
