TruStone Financial Scholarships for High-School Seniors // Applications open March 1

 
We are proud to offer scholarships to members who are graduating high school seniors as they pursue their post-secondary education in the fall of 2022.

The TruStone Financial Foundation offers scholarships to graduating high school seniors pursuing a post-secondary education in the fall of 2022, or enlisting in the U.S. Military. These scholarships are awarded based on merit and scored for academic promise, leadership/community involvement, work experience and the satisfactory completion of an essay question related to financial management. Scholarships will be awarded to 12 students. These scholarships will total $30,000 and will be awarded in increments of $5,000 and $2,000.

Applicants must fill out an application, answer an essay question and be a TruStone Financial member. (Note: Being related to a member does not qualify a student for this scholarship.)

For the purposes of this scholarship, qualifying post-secondary educational institutions include any two or four-year college, university, technical or vocational school within the United States that is duly accredited by one of the national or regional institutional accrediting bodies recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). An alternative qualification is enlistment in the U.S. Military via the Delayed Entry Program.
