Opening Doors to the Future Through Education



SCHOLARSHIPS



New scholarships are awarded once a year at our April Board Meeting. Applications must be received in the TSEF office by APRIL 15TH of each year. You must submit the completed application, which includes a photo, transcript, essay, 3 sealed letters of recommendation, and a copy of your FAFSA award/denial notification. Incomplete and/or late applications WILL NOT be processed.

Should the Foundation receive an application deemed as a hardship, the Board may then consider and award a scholarship at any given time.


HOW TRI STATE SCHOLARSHIPS WORK



Tri State Scholarships are supplemental scholarships. This means that Tri State will pay AFTER all other scholarships and grants have been applied to the student's account. In some cases, all fees will be covered and Tri State will not be billed at all. Payments will be made directly to the school once we receive billing for the student. Tri State funds may ONLY be used for tuition, books, meal tickets, dormitory, and fees. Locally commuting students may ask for their scholarship to be converted to gas vouchers.

Tri State funds undergraduate degrees in any field and graduate degrees in education only. However, Tri State does not fund completely online classes or degrees.

PRIORITY AREAS



Article II of the by-laws of the Tri State Educational Foundation identifies priority areas as: the population residing in a school district lying within or touching a 50 mile radial circle of Iuka, MS will receive priority consideration, with Iuka and Tishomingo County receiving first consideration. However, other educational needs in other areas throughout the state may be considered at times.
