$50,500 in scholarships available for Truckee-North Tahoe students

The nonprofit Tahoe Mountain Resorts Foundation is offering seven scholarships totaling $50,500 to eligible graduating seniors from the class of 2016 at Truckee and North Tahoe High Schools who are applying to a four-year college.

Applications will be accepted through noon on April 1, 2016, with recipients to be notified at each high school’s awards night.

“Each year, it is impressive to see how many students from our local schools have aspirations to make a difference in our world, and are motivated to continue their education at a four-year college or university,” said Michael Park, Tahoe Mountain Resorts Foundation Board Member. “Tahoe Mountain Resorts Foundation is pleased to be able to help some of these students in their effort to achieve their goals.”

Annually, one four-year scholarship is available in the amount of $30,000. TMRF provides six additional scholarships; one at $10,000, one at $6,500, and four at $1,000. Requirements of these scholarships are outlined on TMRF’s website and in its application. 

The TMRF Scholarship Committee, composed of TMRF Board Members and representatives from the Excellence in Education Foundation, will select recipients based on several criteria.
