The Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commission (TRORC) has announced the release of the 2015 Scholarship Program for the region’s college bound high school seniors. The Scholarship is part of TRORC’s economic development efforts focusing on investing in our future workforce. TRORC believes our region’s future is enhanced by both wise and forward-looking stewardship of the land, natural resources, and public institutions, and also through thoughtful investment in the next generation. To this end, the Regional Commission has established 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.
TRORC 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:
- participation in community service-oriented activities;
- engagement with civic institutions;
- demonstrated leadership skills;
- demonstrated innovative thinking and problem solving
- demonstrated entrepreneurship and resourcefulness; and
- the need for financial assistance including reasonable assurance that the student will be able to obtain sufficient financing to complete the program.
Up to five (5) $1,000 scholarships will be awarded. All application materials must be received by the TRORC offices no later than the close of business on the third Friday in May.
Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commission is one of eleven regional planning commissions in the state of Vermont. TRORC’s mission is to advocate for the needs of our member towns and to articulate a vision and carry out actions that build a thriving regional economy while enhancing the quality of life for its citizens.
