The governing board of the Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commission believes our region’s future is enhanced by both wise and forward-looking stewardship of the land, natural resources, and public institutions, as well as through thoughtful investment in the next generation. To this end, the Regional Commission has authorized establishment of an annual TRORC Scholarship Program to encourage and recognize high school students pursuing career and life choices consistent with the vision and values of vibrant and sustainable communities, as articulated in our regularly updated Regional Plan.

The Regional Commission strongly believes that academic performance should be one of many factors in awarding scholarships and will also consider a student’s record in the following areas:

  • community service-oriented activities;
  • engagement with civic institutions;
  • activities that advance diversity, equity, and inclusion;
  • leadership skills;
  • innovative thinking and problem solving;
  • entrepreneurship and resourcefulness.

The new scholarship is announced around February every year. Please keep an eye on this website for the announcement.
