The award will be given to a female graduating from Tri High that has applied to an Ivy League school (Yale University, Harvard University, Princeton University, University of Pennsylvania, Dartmouth University, Cornell University, Columbia University, and Brown University). The applicant does not have to be accepted or go to the Ivy League school to get the scholarship.

A brief explanation is required about how the applicant would like to help others. Extra curricular activities will be reviewed as well — Examples: school sports and clubs, working a part-time job, babysitting, mowing lawns, pet sitting, etc.

Payments will be made directly to the college or university for tuition, room and board, or books. The scholarship will be paid in two payments, one half for the fall semester and upon receipt of the student’s grades, the other half for the spring semester.
