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, diverse 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;
  • engagement with civic institutions;
  • leadership skills;
  • innovative thinking and problem solving;
  • entrepreneurship and resourcefulness.
