2021 Three Rivers College Foundation’s Scholarships and Department Awards

Scholarships and Department Awards are a way for students to help pay for college. Students may earn a scholarship, community, department and/or student government award based on financial status, academic standing, service to the College and community, or a combination of these factors.

Scholarship Application NOW open!  Applications Due, April 23, at 11:59pm. Students must complete the application to be considered.

Over the years, individuals and corporations have established endowed funds that leave a legacy for generations to come.  Funds are invested so that the principal remains untouched, and only the income earned from the investment is used to provide financial support to students. A listing of endowed scholarships can be found below.  A listing of annual community, department and student government awards can be found here. Community and Department Awards
