Tri Counties Bank launches scholarship program for graduating high school seniors

Tri Counties Bank, in partnership with the Community Foundation of the North State, has announced the launch of its annual scholarship program, which awards high school seniors graduating in spring 2024 and pursuing higher education at trade schools, community colleges, and four-year colleges and universities.

The program awards $110,000 annually to students who demonstrate interest in public service, community engagement and business entrepreneurship.

The program offers two types of scholarships:

Income based: Sixty $1,500 scholarships are awarded to students with a Student Aid Index of 0 or less, and a minimum GPA of 2.5.

Merit based: Twenty $1,000 scholarships are offered to students with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.

“A key element of fulfilling our mission is to invest in our students, who will, in turn, strengthen our communities,” said Rick Smith, president and CEO of Tri Counties Bank. “We look forward to another year of rewarding community-minded and intellectually-gifted students.”

Scholarship applications are due by 11:59 PM on March 13, 2024.

Students who are awarded a scholarship will have the funds sent directly to their school or university of choice to help fund education-related expenses.

Students interested in the scholarship program can apply at https://www.tcbk.com/about/community/scholarship-assistance.

Scholarships are available for students with a home address in the following 27 counties: Butte, Colusa, Contra Costa, Del Norte, Fresno, Glenn, Humboldt, Kern, Lake, Madera, Mendocino, Merced, Nevada, Placer, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Mateo, Shasta, Siskiyou, Sonoma, Stanislaus, Sutter, Tehama, Trinity, Tulare, Yolo and Yuba.
